What we're looking for
As part of the RSPB's brand new Oxford Swift City project we are looking for volunteers to help us investigate huge declines in swift populations. One of the reasons for the decline is thought to be a reduction in nesting sites in buildings. As a result, it is really important for us to understand where swifts are nesting so that we can help to protect and recover their population. We are looking for volunteers to undertake simple surveys through summer to record where swifts are flying and nesting. As a surveyor, you can also help us to connect to local communities and get them excited about Oxford Swift City!
