Swifts are the quintessential bird of summer which fly with black scimitar-wings around our Sussex towns on summer evenings form May to July. Their numbers have roughly halved over the last 20 years, partially due to loss of their nesting sites in our towns.
However, local people can help reverse this decline by providing new swift bricks and boxes, and by locating and protecting their existing nesting sites. This FREE talk on the 31st March will show how Lewes Swift Supporters have started to implement these actions. Hopefully our experience will inspire local groups in other Sussex towns to help these beautiful birds keep enriching our lives
