No doubt many plotholders will be familiar with the swifts that fly over the site at this time of year. Derbyshire Widlife Trust are running a survey to find out where they nest and think this may be the largest colony in the city. We know that they use the old tape factory on Dean Street to nest in and suspect they may also be using the roofs of other properties locally. It would be a great help if people could keep an eye out and if you see swifts going under the eaves of any houses then to let me know the address using the comments form below so that I can pass the information on to the Trust. Many thanks. Further information about the swift project can be found at http://www.derbyshirewildlifetrust.org.uk/news/2014/06/09/summer-swift-survey-help-winged-visitors
