    As a beginner I put up three nest boxes late April. Began playing a recorded Swift Call from little speaker just below the boxes early May. Last night I changed my timer to a digital one.
    This afternoon at around 4pm I was coming out of the back of my house when I heard the sound of screaming Swifts.
    Thinking my timer had turned on my recording too early I went to check, On the way I happened to look up and there to my delight and joy were three or four Swifts circling around about fifteen meters above my house.
    I quickly turned on my recorded Swift call.
    I came out to have a look two or three times over the next hour and the Swifts were still swooping around.
    Last Tuesday about 8pm I saw a group of swifts near St Mary’s Church on the Dublin Road in Drogheda.
    Has anyone else had sightings along the Meath Coastal Area?
    Corballis, Laytown.
