Ireland's Swifts need your help

Appeal for sightings - Brian Caffrey , Birdwatch Ireland.

The incredible sound of a party of screaming Swifts speeding overhead is one of the most iconic sounds of an Irish summer. However, the future of the Swift is under threat and there is growing concern for their populations both here in Ireland and across Europe.

This summer, thanks to funding from 
The Heritage Council and Dublin City Council, BirdWatch Ireland is undertaking a number of Swift surveys, and we need your help! To take part, simply let us know where you see Swifts and where their nest sites are.
