  • Co. Mayo

Join Lynda Huxley, Swift Conservation Mayo and Jaroslaw Majkusiak MSc for a presentation on Mayo's Amazing Swifts.

Lynda and Jaroslaw will introduce you to the wondrous life of the red-listed bird of conservation concern, the Swift.

Swifts make the perilous journey from Africa every Spring to come home to Mayo to rear their young in the buildings of our towns.

For the past 15 years, Lynda has been collaborating with Mayo County Council and many Schools and Community Groups in County Mayo on projects to successfully recover the declining Swift population.

Jaroslaw has recently completed a three year study on the breeding biology of the Swifts in County Mayo.

Come along and hear an inspiring story of saving the Amazing Swifts of Mayo.
