TALK: The Life of the Swift
March 15, 2016 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm£3
A talk by Catherine Day of the RSPB Central London Local Group and Brenna Boyle of Wild Capital
Tuesday 15th March 2016 7pm for 7.30pm
Did you know that swifts spend their whole lives on the wing, landing only to nest and rear their young; that they mate for life and return to the same nest site each year; and that they are the world’s fastest bird in level flight?
In the last decade, satellite tagging has revealed fundamental details of their astonishing migration and lifestyle that were previously totally unknown.
Come and learn more about these fascinating birds, the new Chiswick Swift Project and how you can help these iconic summer visitors.
Catherine Day is a volunteer Swift and Urban Nature Advisor for the RSPB Southeast England Region – www.rspb.org.uk/groups/centrallondon . Brenna Boyle has spoken here before and is a Field Naturalist who runs Wild Capital
