RSPB Brighton Swift Survey 2018

Following our successful first city-wide survey last year, which helped identify 76 nest sites for Brighton Swifts, we are now planning our 2018 survey, which aims to build on the data gathered last year and to work to protect and expand existing colonies.

We’ll be looking to do deeper work in our ‘hot-spot’ areas as well as cover some areas not included last year. We need new volunteers to join our group of experienced surveyors from last year to help us survey swifts in Brighton during May-July to help reverse the significant decline in populations.

If you live in the Brighton & Hove area and would like to help protect these fantastic birds please check out our volunteer swift surveyor role here or contact john.cuthbert@rspb.org.uk for details.
