Training event - Llantwit Major

There were nine participants for our training event in Llantwit Major. The weather was good and we immediately saw several Swifts over the town. Initially there were three or four Swifts seen but numbers built up to seven or eight. We concentrated on the older buildings in the town centre, eventually locating one nest site in the Old School building. Other birds seemed to be favouring the area around the church tower, although we couldn't find specific nest sites.

There is obviously a small colony here. As a result we decided to set up a nest box scheme (with the help of local resident, Gareth Roberts). Three boxes were presented and a call system will be purchased.

The following photos show the nest site that we found and some of the participants in the training event. Many thanks to all those who took part.
