Act Swiftly for Swifts
Did you know Swifts spend almost their entire lives on the wing, not landing until they are 2 or 3 years old, and then only landing to nest!?
Swifts are in severe decline on the Isle of Man and threatened with extinction in Britain. If we do not act now, we could lose this special bird forever.
Meet Manx BirdLife and Manx Ornithological Society to find out more about Swifts and how you can help them.
Play the Swift Migration Game and discover the long and perilous journey these phenomenal fliers make each year.
Create your own life-size collage of a Swift – attach some string and make it fly!
The event will be a drop-in information stand and activities for all the family.
Activities are aimed at children aged 7+. Younger children can do the activities but might need help from their family with reading and crafting.
Children must be supervised by their parent, carer, or guardian.
Free, but donations welcome.
