It has been wonderful seeing the swifts return this May! Sadly, though, swift numbers are plummeting, and the RSPB believes this is due to a reduction in nesting sites over recent years.

To help understand swifts’ nesting behaviours better, the RSPB are asking anyone who sees a group of screaming swifts or a nesting swift to make note of it and upload the record to their Swift Mapper.

If that sounds like you, or if you’re interested to learn more, you can find out more about the Swift Mapper by following this link.
