June 16th to 23rd 2018 is Swift Awareness Week. In Kinoulton, South Nottinghamshire, we are lucky enough to have encouraged swifts to nest in the tower of St. Luke’s Church and we would like to share our enjoyment of these amazing birds. If, as we hope, the swifts return to breed in the tower this year we will choose one or two evenings during Swift Awareness Week to invite anyone who would like to experience the swifts screaming around the church and over the churchyard, as well as seeing them on their nests via a CCTV screen, to come and join us. We’ll be there to answer questions and, if the elements are on our side, to witness the disappearance of the swifts into their nest boxes or up into the sky for the night, as the sun sets.
If you would like to join us please contact Carol Collins, 0194981798 or firstname.lastname@example.org at the beginning of June, by which time we should have decided on dates and times.
