Swifts around a Tower – Exhibition Rationale

1 May – 30 June

Tower exhibition

Some birds intrigue us because they are rare or live in remote places. Others have striking plumage or sing sweetly. The swift is different. Swifts are not related to swallows or martins. They are unable to perch so apart from nesting they have to spend most of their life on the wing. They cause man no harm and consume many insects regarded as pests.

For three brief months each summer, we are used to seeing swifts flying high above our towns. Their wild elusiveness inspires us in a way that no other bird can.

Sadly their numbers are falling, and many former sites are now empty. This exhibition of words and images has been assembled in the hope that it will increase awareness of a very special component of our summer skies.
