They’re back!

The arrival of swifts in Europe has been slow this year. Thankfully we now have 5 pairs returned and one single bird. The pairs that can be seen on Cameras 1 and 2 are now in their fifth year of breeding and are probably 8 years old because swifts don’t usually start to breed until they are 3 years old. Last year these two pairs had 3 chicks each which fledged successfully.
