Davog Mccloskey of Peach Ecology is advising a housing company building in Kings Worthy, Winchester. The company is very keen to erect a swift tower equipped with sound equipment to attract swifts to the site before they start building. The houses will be equipped with swift nest boxes so hopefully the erection of a swift tower will increase the chances of colonisation of the site.
Davog has done a data search of the local area with Hampshire Biodiversity Information Centre and couldn’t find any records of swifts or their nest sites within 1km of the site. The approximate postcode is SO23 7NU.
Does anyone know of any nearby places where they are nesting? If so, please respond using the CONTACT US form and the information will be forwarded to Hampshire Swifts.
