Lynda Huxley spotted a swift over GMIT nest boxes 30th April

Lynda Huxley saw one Swift flying over GMIT Mayo Campus in Castlebar yesterday evening and we have fresh nest material in boxes 9 and 7. Hope to get livestream up and running in next couple of days. Ricky Whelan of BirdWatchIreland has also had reports of Swift sightings in Banagher and Birr. These will be breeding birds so should be going to their nest sites. The ‘bangers’ i.e. potential new breeders should arrive in the next couple of weeks.
