It is brown in colour, but in flight against the sky it appears to be black. It has long, scythe like wings and a short forked tail. The swift is a summer visitor from April August. Breeding is across the UK but mostly in the South and East.Swifts can be seen very high up in the summer sky, but they never perch on wires like swallows. You might also see excited screaming parties of them careering madly at high speed around rooftops and houses especially towards dusk.Swifts tend to eat flying insects and airborne spiders.Young swifts remain in the nest for 37ndash56 days, depending on the weather conditions. If it gets too cold, they fall into a sleepy state called Torpor ndash a bit like hibernation ndash during which they dont feed until conditions improve. Youngsters are independent as soon as they leave the nest, and set out immediately on migration.Swifts start their return journey in mid July before nights become too cool. Swifts cannot roost overnight during the journey like swallows can, so they travel very quickly. One young swift that left its UK nest on 31 July, was found in Madrid Spain on 3 August.Most swifts have reached central Africa by mid August. They do not spend the winter in one place, but travel around according to food supplies and weather conditions. Swifts can live up to 21 years, so one individual may fly over one million kilometres during its lifetime.Source RSPBnbspFind out all you need to know to help Swifts survive and thrive at www.swift conservation.org
