The talk takes place this week

Bird lovers will be able to find out how to help the common swift at a meeting on Wednesday.

The bird, renowned for even sleeping on the wing, visits Bromley for three months each summer, and the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds is keen to help conserve their populations.

A spokesperson from the charity said: “Swifts still breed in our eaves and gables, but not for much longer, as modern and renovated buildings exclude them.

“Unless we help them, swifts will vanish from the UK.

“Find out all about swifts, why they matter, and how you can help them thrive from Edward Mayer’s fascinating talk.”

Mr Mayer is the founder of the Swift Conservation advice service.

On Wednesday, the RSPB will be hosting a talk at the United Reformed Church in Widmore Road from 7.15pm to 9pm.

Tickets at £3.50 for RSPB members and £4.50 for others, visit www.rspb.org.uk/groups/Bromley for more details.
