​Summer Migrant Birds

​Summer Migrant Birds

A wide range of birds migrate to our shores each spring/summer, to breed, nest and raise their young - before leaving again for warmer climes further south. Some distinctive migrant birds in The Living Coast are:

Swifts - scimitar-winged bird with short forked tail, especially active at dusk screaming high over city skies

Swallows (pic above) - a bird with long tail streamers, seen chasing insects and perched on telephone wires on countryside areas

House Martins - with white rump and short forked tail, with distinctive mud nests under the eaves of buildings
