Welcome to the Cherwell Swifts Conservation Project

Cherwell is one of the 4 District Councils Oxfordshire. It has over 70 parishes and a population of about 150,000 people.
The project aims and objectives are:
1      to identify and protect Swift nest sites in the Cherwell District
2      to provide new nest places for Swifts in suitable sites
3      to improve local understanding of Swifts, their life history and the risks they face particularly from building work
4      to use opportunities provided by the project to promote conservation of other wildlife


The Cherwell Swifts Conservation Project is one of a growing network of small groups working at grassroots level to try to conserve Britain's  declining Swift population.
