The swift is on the amber list of birds of conservation concern in Ireland because its population has declined by over 40% in the last 15 years. They come to our towns every year for just four months, arriving in late April and leaving in late August. Work is being undertaken to help save the swift in Ireland by erecting nest boxes, surveying for traditional sites and rescuing injured birds. June Fest are very thankful to The Keadeen Hotel and Eric McDonnell for allowing Birdwatch Ireland to erect nest boxes on their buildings.
