Between 1995 and 2015 the RSPB estimates a 51% decrease in the number of breeding Swifts in the UK making them an amber-listed species. They need our help.
Local Swift enthusiast Vicky Duxbury is looking for your assistance to identify and survey Swift nest sites and to raise awareness of the decline to help stop this worrying downward trend.
Please find more information from Vicky below. If you are interested in finding out more and helping in whatever way you can please get in touch with Vicky at
Many congratulations to Paul Ward whose exceptional image of a Grasshopper Warbler at Heartwood Forest was voted Herts Bird Photo of the Year 2017 at the Herts/BTO Bird Conference on 10 March 2018.
Birds of Hertfordshire, our beautifully illustrated account of population trends among more than 300 species recorded in the county, has been judged one of the best local bird atlases in Britain.
A panel of experts convened by British Birds magazine placed our book on a shortlist of the top six county bird atlases. It was then awarded fourth place in the final judging.
Warm congratulations go the book's authors, Ken Smith, Chris Dee, Jack Fearnside and Mike Ilett on this achievement.
