The purpose of Swift Mapper is to record the location of swifts and swift nest sites around the UK. This information can then be used to monitor distribution and population changes. The data can also be used by local authority planners, architects, ecologists and developers to find out where swift hotspots are and provide suitable mitigation to protect breeding swifts during building development. This data will play an important role in reversing the decline of this charismatic migrant bird.
Please record all swift sites you encounter. Records you submit can make a big difference to the conservation of swifts.
