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?
Greetings from Laytown, Co Meath. 1st May 2018
I began playing my Swift Call about a week ago.
I am using a new outdoor speaker pointed upwards.
I have covered it in two sheets of Clingfilm just in case the rain my cause a problem.
The volume is fantastic in fact I only have my little Amplifier which Lynda sent me at half volume !
I purchased them ( a set of two) on Amazon from JW Electronics UK for £35:99. They are called, Waterproof Marine Box Speakers 100W 4inch.
I will give a performance update in about four weeks.
So come little Swifts and have a look at my three weighting Nest Boxes.
Lots of swifts here this year. Waterloo house, Mallow, Cork
