The migration route of our swifts is an epic adventure from eastern Africa all the way to the UK and back again. This journey is part of a flyway used by millions of birds every year, including other familiar migratory species, like swallows and cuckoos. But swifts are just a little bit special. Not only do they do this journey without ever landing, but they can also travel super-fast, zipping along at speeds of almost 70 mph.
Despite these talents, our swifts are in trouble. The RSPB is working hard to protect them, and you can help too! Find out more as you follow our swift on her adventure.
