Swifts in the Community
Swifts in the Community is a project based in South Cumbria and North Lancashire, set up with the aim of conserving swifts by preserving their traditional nesting sites in local towns and villages.
Their nests, a shallow cup of straw cemented together with saliva, are nearly always in buildings built before the 1950s and about half of all nest sites are in private dwelling houses.
