London's Swifts Local Swift Groups

Join a successful working group helping Swifts near you

Check below and see if there is a Swift group near you;  they can help you in setting up a Swift colony or persuading your local government, church or school, or housing estate, to help Swifts, as well as in studying Swifts, and you can help them too!

Some of these groups have been running for years, and have an amazingly successful track record; others have just started up. All have access to the latest information. Regardless of region, they should be happy to give you advice and contacts.

Click on any green Swift logo to contact a member of the group - some groups have their own websites  - these are underlined
