A discussion about animal migration near you
I've just read in the Springwatch blog (http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/natureuk/2011/05/spring-bird-migration-highligh-4.shtml) that swifts are currently arriving in the UK in large numbers. Can anyone tell me where they have flown from? Has anyone on this forum spotted any?
Hi NatureLover13, The RSPB website says "Our UK swifts... spend their winter in Africa, south of the Sahara" see http://www.rspb.org.uk/wildlife/birdguide/name/s/swift/distribution_migration.aspx for more info.
