We are a Conservation project trying to reverse the decline of urban birds especially Swifts & House Martins. These special birds are entirely dependent on buildings for their nest space, they brighten and enhance our summer skies, control insects for us and put on the most amazing aerial displays. We make and help install Swift boxes locally, offer boxes for sale and donate boxes to schools. Our talk "A Swift recovery?" has had great feedback from both youth and adult groups.

Lots more details can be found on our Facebook, Twitter and You Tube the excellent websites we take advice from; and the RSPB- help us help swifts.

If you would like to help Swifts and House Martins or just find out more about what we do give us a call! Louise 07557796508

Swifts and other birds are having a hard time at the moment with the unseasonal cold and wet May and June affecting their breeding success. Swift colonies in Bolton are also declining due to roof renovations blocking their access to their nest sites.
