Preserving Mayville's Swift Community

We now have Swift boxes on the outside of Kenilworth Lodge, thanks to Dave Warner from Hampshire Swifts. Miss Flower has organised the initiative at Mayville in conjunction with him. Pupils in her class have been learning how there has been a decline in swifts due to the loss of old buildings and roof spaces over the years. There has always been a community of swifts at Mayville and these boxes situated up high will help them when they start to nest this year. We are also hoping to get mini cameras installed so they can be monitored. Let's hope Mayville can preserve the swifts that visit. What a fantastic effort.
