Sorry tale

Had a phone call from Dave & Margaret Knight from Penarth last week. His neighbour's cat had brought in a Swift. It was still alive, so Dave did exactly the right thing, by putting it in a box and giving it water from a tissue. Sadly the Swift died the next day. It seems, it had been trying to enter a nest site that had been blocked up during renovations to the roof and exhausted itself. It shows that we must be mindful of this when undertaking roof repairs.

Kings Road, Canton

Julia and I leafletted Kings Road in Canton yesterday. There are a few pairs of Swifts in the area and we thought we'd make the locals aware of them. Awaiting responses.
