Swifts return

May 14, 2011

Yesterday’s (6th May) return of Swifts to the parish was a welcome sight. No sooner had they returned than they had started to re-colonise their traditional nest sites. These sites tend to be the cottages and houses in the village which have not had their roofing “improved”. The improvement tends to remove access points and the nesting site is lost to the birds.

I counted the newly arrived Lower Brampton flock as being made up of six birds – they scream around the houses in the early evening their own form of joy-riding.
