Great News , We have now raised £451 for Swifts!
Following the sale of our pin badges, I am please to say we have now achieved our fund raising target.
I set a target of £450 based on margins etc. Thank you to everyone who bought badges and made donations.
I still have 39 badges left if anyone would like one. You can buy from ebay: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Wakefield-District-Swift-Group-Limited-Edition-Pin-Badge/303906919255?hash=item46c2439357:g:~20AAOSw5J5gP7wR
Or directly from me – email@example.com or @croftonbirder on twitter.
We have already bought 4 nest boxes from peak boxes. These are a proven design and well built.
|7 Nesting places ready to go.....|
The boxes are being placed:
South Kirkby= Double Box (BBSG area)
South Elmsall = Double Box (BBSG area)
Hemsworth = Single box (BBSG Area)
New Crofton= Double Box (BBSG Area…..Just about)
We are now actively looking for people who are wanting a box. In particular we would like to hear from people with colonies nearby. Based on the map printed in the Breeding Birds book, I have identified the following areas within the Wakefield District which fall in the Barnsley BSG area:
Woolley (Woolley Grange)
New Crofton (Lump area)
I have created a flow chart to see if your home is suitable?
Also if you know anyone in other parts of Wakefield which are interested please Let me know: Wakefieldswifts@gmail.com
