What we're looking for
Do you live in or around Brighton & Hove? Do you want to contribute to the conservation of swift populations in the city? If so, we want to hear from you! Swifts are fantastic, highly visible and noisy birds that spend the winter in Africa before migrating back to UK every spring to nest in urban areas. However, they need our help to investigate significant declines in populations over the last decade. One of the reasons for the decline is thought to be a reduction in nesting sites in buildings. To help our swifts we first need to know where they are nesting. This is where you come in! We need as many volunteers as possible to survey swifts in Brighton & Hove in order to identify colonies and nest sites so that we can work towards protecting them and establishing new sites.
