*************************************** Wednesday 14th July ****************************************

Join BirdWatch Ireland for this free online event as part of our Birds Connect project. Spending most of their life in the air, swifts are one of our most fascinating birds. Find out more about their amazing lives, eating, drinking and even sleeping on the wing and their epic annual migration. Swifts are in trouble in Ireland due to a loss of places to nest, but there is still much we can do to help.

The talk is presented by Brian Caffrey & Ricky Whelan. Brian heads up the Survey and Monitoring section of the Conservation Division. Brian is responsible for the volunteer surveys and research projects which allow us to monitor the changing status of birds in Ireland such as swifts, helping us to focus our conservation work on our most threatened birds and habitats. Ricky coordinates our work on Swifts including our County Swift Surveys as well as other seasonal volunteer surveys including Project Lapwing and River bird Surveys. As part of his work Ricky also co hosts BirdWatch Ireland’s ‘In Your Nature’ podcast.

This event is kindly supported by The Community Foundation for Ireland as part of BirdWatch Ireland’s Birds Connect project. The project focuses on connecting people and birds through citizen science, outreach and training.
