We’ve all seen the wonderful sight of gangs of Swifts charging up and down Main Street at rooftop height with their exuberant trilling calls in the height of Summer. We’d love to keep our lovely avian friends, and your PC has been talking about what we can do to help. The two links in the pictures on this page represent the first small step we are taking. If we find that interest is strong, we will consider buying in a number of the special “nest bricks” that can be built into a new or existing house.
