Birdwatch Ireland – Westmeath Branch

This summer members of the Westmeath branch volunteered with BirdWatch Ireland’s Westmeath Swift Survey. The survey was carried out with the support of the Heritage office of Westmeath County Council. Volunteers were from various Tidy Towns groups across the county.

Following on from that survey, the Westmeath branch is sponsoring three swift nest boxes and lure systems. These are in Moate, Rochfortbridge and Kinnegad to provide additional nesting sites for swifts in these localities. The members of the Westmeath branch presented the nest box systems to representatives from Moate and Rochfortbridge Tidy Towns committee. Moate and Rochfortbridge Tidy Towns groups also helped out with the nest surveys this summer.

A third system will be presented in Kinnegad in the coming weeks. The nest boxes are funded by donations made by members of the Westmeath branch of BirdWatch Ireland.

The donations are given at our monthly meetings. Our next meeting is October 11th, 8pm Bloomfield House Hotel. Our guest speaker will be Pádraic Fogarty of the Irish Wildlife Trust, further details will be posted here next week. All of our events are free and open to all. Nest boxes and swift call sound systems are supplied by Genesis Nest Boxes.
