More homes for swifts in East Dulwich

SNAV member Steven Robinson has recently co-ordinated a Dulwich Society Wildlife Committee nest box project in East Dulwich for swifts. 

UK swifts have declined by more than 60% between 1995-2021, largely due to the loss of nest sites. East Dulwich still has a good swift population and Steven and the Committee members want this to continue. 21 boxes have been installed on people’s homes after the Dulwich Society provided funding for 20 boxes. Roofer Darren Long from DLong Roofing who installed them all kindly donated his labour free of charge.
