As part of UK Swift Awareness Week, the Helmsley Swifts group is holding  a free evening event at All Saints Church, Helmsley on 21st June.  “A Midsummer Swift Eve” will commence from 7.30pm. There will be a short presentation, followed by walk around the town to look at Swifts, Swallows and House Martins. Light refreshments will be offered. You may also like to Follow @HelmsleySwifts on twitter. An article on the Visit Helmsley website is also very useful on the origin and aims of the Helmsley Swifts group.

I work in ecology and biodiversity in North Yorkshire. I'm often found outdoors snapping nature and landscapes or spotting birds. In the garden I enjoy having my hands in the earth and striving for the perfect mix of greens and browns in my compost. As a Daddy and adopter I'm used to endless questions about the world around us, and generally have an answer up my sleeve for most things. If you spot me and my hat in real life or on social media do say hello!
