Closing down until next year!

We’ve had no further visits from any swifts and we haven’t seen any near our house recently, so that really is it folks. Such a shame that our swifts didn’t rear any young this year but we shall look forward to their return next year and hopefully they’ll do a bit better. So bye bye until next April-ish and thank you for visiting this blog!

All gone now?

The single bird in Box 1 that we thought had left did in fact return to roost on a couple of odd nights but not on a regular basis. Now it’s the 1st August and last night there were no roosting swifts in Box 3, so we think that they have finally left. We’ll keep the cameras going for another couple of weeks or so yet though just in case we get some last minute prospectors!
