Hexham Swift Heaven

In 2021 we started a new project which aims to increase the numbers of swifts returning to Hexham every year.

This year we have erected over 40 new swift boxes and have started an annual survey of swifts to monitor their numbers. Alongside the rest of our work to increase wild spaces and the numbers of invertebrates flying in Hexham’s skies, we hope this will revive the flagging fortunes of swifts.
