Join an online webinar on swifts - The birds you can help


16 June 2021

In just 25 years the population of Swifts have declined by 50%. Edward Mayer, the founder of Swift Conservation will join Friends of Barnes Common for an online webinar to explain how you can help.

In 2003 Edward Mayer pioneered an approach to preserving the future of the swift through advice, talks and the encouragement of widespread volunteer action. It was such a success that the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds asked him to make it a national service and Swift Conservation was born. Swift Conservation supplies advice and helpful information via its web site.

Edward has given over 300 talks and training sessions to various organisations. Free leaflets and nest box designs are available, as well as recordings of swift calls for attracting the birds to new nest sites. Edward also provides tailored advice on specific projects and on the setting up of local groups to support Swifts.

Join Edward for this special webinar where you can find out more about Swift populations and how you can help local swift populations.
