I found this Swift huddled up and clinging to an artificial House Martin nest this morning. Clearly a victim of the very cold, windy and wet weather I decided to bring the bird inside to warm it up. It is resting in the dark and I will watch the birds in the camera box to see when they leave to feed. So far the weather has been so bad that haven’t left their nest box today, now 1.15pm. It could be that it would be sensible to release the bird tomorrow in fine weather.
