It has been three years since we decided to start a Swift group in conjuction with the Scarborough Bird Club. We have been undertaking Swift surveys and carrying out various conservation activities such as putting up swift boxes over this period. We will review what progress we have made and where the project is likely to take us. This is a joint meeting with Scarborough Bird Club.
After last years journey along the undercliff from Whitby to Scarborough Rob will now take us south to Flamborough Head and review the best of the wildlife that we so rarely get to see.
