NBC Indoor Meeting 2nd Jan


The next indoor meeting of the Northants Bird Club is this coming Wednesday 2nd January, our speaker being Dick Newell.

This talk will cover information about Common Swifts, their lifestyles, their migrations and their decline in the UK. As one of the main causes of the decline is loss of nest sites, the talk will cover a wide range of nest boxing solutions from off the shelf products to custom solutions. Dick is with Action for Swifts and has developed many ideas and designs to help Swifts. Many of these are documented on

In 2016, Dick and AfS were given a Marsh Award for Innovative Ornithology.

This will take place at the usual venue of the Fishing Lodge, Pitsford Reservoir. The meeting starts at 7.30 and tea and coffee will be available.

All welcome!
