The Cambridge International Swift Conference provided a great chance for networking. One result has been that a Swifts Local Network (SLN) has been set up. This will enable the many UK-based individuals and small groups now working on Swift conservation initiatives to share experiences and ideas more easily.
As a first step, Peta Sams has produced this map showing where members of the Network are operating.
First hit the 'full screen' icon, then click on any symbol for brief details of the activities in that location.
There is also now a SLN Yahoo group, which anyone in the UK can join by invitation, and through which users can exchange news and information, and seek help or advice. This newsgroup should sit neatly alongside the Swallows Martins and Swifts Worldwide group (known as SMS).
So if you are working on Swift conservation in the UK and would like to join the Group and register your project on the map please contact Peta Sams.
