UK swift survey

Welcome to the UK swift survey

Thank you for taking part in our swift survey. Please follow the instructions to tell us about the swifts that you have seen. We'll use this information to help planners and local authorities take action to help swifts.

If you've got a RSPB website account, please use your details to log in - this way you can keep track of which sightings you've reported.

If you don't have an account don't worry - you can still record your sightings, and if you wish you can register at the end.
