This week, the RSPB launched a campaign to encourage people to put up nest boxes for the Common Swift.
Swift numbers have declined in the UK and it is thought that increasing the availability of nesting locations will give them a chance to recover.
On The Casual Birder Podcast this week the RSPB's Jamie Wyver tells me about this fascinating bird.
If you wish to listen, you can find it on Spotify, Apple Podcasts, You Tube, or your preferred podcast app.
I will be buying 2 nestboxes and will report back on whether I get any birds using it this year.
