St Peter's Swifts Return for May

Following the great amount of interest shown last year in our swift nesting boxes, we have this week had a further three boxes installed, bringing the number of boxes located in the bell tower up to seven!

The birds are expected to arrive back in Sudbury on the 7th of May (they are amazingly punctual!). Visitors may like to look out for gangs of swifts swooping around the tower throughout the summer, particularly around the east facing belfry window, where the boxes are located.

Our electronic calling system alerts the birds to the new nesting boxes which have been kindly provided and installed by Adrian Walters, Warden of Sudbury Common Lands.
