Cliff Nesting Swifts in N Ireland

In 2010 a report came in about screaming swifts close to an inland cliff face in County Fermanagh. A group of people were at a ?butterfly course and their field trip took them to a site close to Derrygonnelly. A few days later one of the committee members was in Fermanagh doing a bat survey and went for a look. On arriving the swifts were screaming by the cliff. They can be seen in the video below. Three nest sites were identified. Two more visits revealed 4 and a possible 5th nest site.

We have now got evidence of two more cliffs with possible breeding swifts.
