Swift Awareness Week walk
ARKLOW people are being asked to volunteer to help with a survey of the town’s population of swifts.
As part of Swift Awareness Week, members of Birdwatch Ireland will lead a ‘swift walk’ in Arklow on Wednesday, June 26 at 7.30 p.m. Wicklow County Council recently announced a joint project with Birdwatch Ireland to survey the swift population in the county.
The locations of the town’s main swift colonies have been identified. However, many are in large estates and some are difficult to survey without local volunteers. The walk starts from the Tesco car park with the chance to observe locally nesting swifts. All are welcome.
