Swifts Local Network (SLN)


The Cambridge International Swift Conference in 2014 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.

Click map to go to Google maps
You can see from this map  where members of the Network are operating - have a look for someone near you.

If you are looking for advice, then first find someone near to you on the map. If you are a member of SLN, you can also post questions on the Yahoo Group.
Note that SLN is unable to operate a central advice service.


First hit the the map, left, for a 'full screen' map, then click on any symbol for contact details and brief details of the activities in that location.

There is also a SLN Yahoo group, which anyone anyone working for Swifts in their community in the UK can join by invitation - users can exchange news and information, and seek help or advice. This newsgroup sits 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 our administrator.

Useful links to SLN are:

If you are a member then to post a message for the rest of the group to read send an email to  : swiftslocalnetwork@yahoogroups.com

If you wish to join the group send an email with some information about yourself to : swiftslocalnetwork-subscribe@yahoogroups.com

If you no longer want to receive emails from the newsgroup then send a blank email to : swiftslocalnetwork-unsubscribe@yahoogroups.com

If you want to contact the newsgroup's administrator then send an email to  swiftslocalnetwork-owner@yahoogroups.com

Note - this is a closed group - you cannot subscribe yourself.  Sending an email to subscribe will notify the newsgroup's administrator that you wish to join - so some information about you - name, where you are located, and if you are part of an exisiting Swift group- is very helpful
