RSPB SWIFT MAPPER

RSPB SWIFT MAPPER

Each year, swifts fly from Africa to the UK to breed, but with numbers plummeting they desperately need your help. In just 20 years, more than half of our swifts have vanished and we believe that the loss of nest sites in the roofs of buildings is at least partly responsible.  By using Swift Mapper, you’ll help locate breeding hotspots for swifts and protect their homes.

Swifts pair for life and meet up at the same nest site in the UK each spring – usually in gaps under roof tiles and in the eaves of buildings. But as more and more old buildings are demolished or renovated, many swifts are returning to discover their nest site is gone. By telling us where you see nesting swifts you’ll help to build a picture of where swift nest sites need to be protected and where it would be best to provide new nest sites.
