JAN STANNARD: local activist. Swift Conservation


Wednesday 4th October  2017

Swift numbers have fallen by 47% in recent years because they are losing tens of thousands of nesting places across the country. Jan Stannard  became an eco-warrior on their behalf in 2015 and has been very active in founding the Maidenhead, Marlow and Cookham Swift Group which now has nearly 100 supporters: together they achieved a world record for the biggest number of new swift nesting places in a single year in the locality. Jan will talk about what can be done to persuade architects and builders to provide solutions.
