UK map of swifts arriving back in the UK after migration
May 21 2021

Are swifts late in 2021?

Have you been looking skyward for the first glimpse of a swift swooping by? These summertime icons delight us with their aerial acrobatics as they return from Africa to breed in the UK.

Looking back at 20 years of Nature’s Calendar ‘first recorded’ sightings we would expect to see swifts from mid-April, but this year comparably few have been recorded yet. Find out more about identifying swifts, their migration and how to add your record to Nature’s Calendar.
