    Also If you’re interested in becoming more involved in the SOS Swifts campaign you could become a ‘swift searcher’. As a swift searcher, we will ask you to collect information from your local area to feed into the campaign. It may be that you have your own suggestions about nest box site location and local awareness initiatives. For more information about nest boxes please visit the Swift Conservation website and tick the box below if you’d like specific advice, so we can get in touch and ask for some more details.
