The threatened swift population was in the spotlight in Sutton Bridge as visitors learned the birds face extinction.

The event coincided with Swift Awareness Week and was held to commemorate the finished Swifts in the Tower project at St Matthew’s Church.

The Wildlife Trust and RSPB, as well as organiser Lesley Robinson, gave talks to educate the visitors, including many families, on how to protect endangered animals.

Ms Robinson said: “As long as I can get more people interested in swifts, that’s wonderful.”

“They are in danger of becoming extinct.”

Ms Robinson is keen to give advice and talks to the public about swifts’ future.
