Swifts in Newbury
By West Berkshire Museum
A walk and a talk by local bird expert, Ailsa Claybourn, about these amazing birds who are disappearing from our skies, and how we can help them.
Did you know they live almost entirely aerial lives, fly up to 2 million km/1.24 million miles in a lifetime, sleep with only half their brain at a time and bathe by flying through rain?
After a talk inside the Museum, Ailsa will take us to see swifts and their nest sites in a walk from West Berkshire Museum, along the canal and back through Westfields.
This talk and walk is in support of Swift Awareness Week 2023.
Please note: places are limited and there will be no access to the Museum during or after the walk.
