Concern for Swifts (Scotland)
- Home Page
Swifts are a familiar
part of summer.
It would be a great loss if the summer skies
no longer played host
to their aerial chasing and screaming.
We believe that action
is needed NOW to prevent their loss.
is increasing international concern about loss of swift nest
sites, and thus swift colonies. This is largely due to modern methods
of renovating old buildings, modern building styles and new types
of materials used for new buildings. There are both documented and
anecdotal reports of loss or severe decrease of swifts in places
due to renovation or demolition of colonial sites.
Concern for Swifts web-site, aims to share information
about nest sites, the threats to them, ways of keeping existing
sites and designs for creating new ones.
