Help! I’ve found fallen swift or swift chick on the ground!
Please refer to our emergency contacts page here.
I think an existing nest site is under threat due to building work or other reasons.
If you believe an existing nest site is under threat (at any time of year), please email us ASAP with as much detail as you can provide. We will treat all reports anonymously.
Is my house suitable for a swift nest box?
Please refer to our advice page here.
I don’t live in the Sheffield S6 postcode area but would like advice.
We’re a small voluntary group and prioritise our service to the S6 postcode area in order to make things manageable for us. You are welcome to contact us for advice and we will respond after any local enquiries, or refer you to a swift group that covers your area. Please refer to the question: Are there any other local swift groups in Sheffield? for details of other swift groups in Sheffield.
Where can I report swift sightings and nest sites?
S6 Swifts, as part of the Sheffield Swift Network, is encouraging everyone to get involved in spotting and surveying swifts. We have drawn up a comprehensive guide here with an easy to use form you can complete to report your sightings.
Are there any other local swift groups in Sheffield?
Yes. In fact we have recently teamed up with several other swifts groups in Sheffield (including the Sheffield & Rotherham Wildlife Trust) to form the Sheffield Swift Network (SSN). There are many areas in Sheffield that do not have a dedicated local swift group and there are several significant city wide initiatives that require all our shared knowledge and efforts going forward. For more information please visit the website here. A full list of members are here.
