Swift Conservation at Countryfile Live

'Flying' at the Wildlife Zone - The new Swift Bronzes by JOEL helped to draw people to discover more about this special bird and Swift conservation projects they can support.

Swifts in Bronze by Sculptress JOEL at BBC  Countryfile Live 2016

Visitors could discover the differences between Swifts and Swallows and to find out how carefully siting Swift boxes helps these birds to breed.

Thanks are given to the Swift Action Group, the folk at BBOWT and staff of CountryFile Live for all their help during the show.
