Regrettably the Wiltshire Wildlife Trust event on the 20th August "Festival of Flight" has been cancelled owing to the wet and very windy weather forecast.


After a long break, we are now once again able to invite people in to see bird ringing demonstrations at Swindon STW.

The first demo will be on Sunday 14th August whilst we are undertaking a visit as part of the BTO Constant Effort Sites Scheme. It will take place from 07:00 until 10:30, people need to all meet at the same time because we will need to meet at the gate and then escort visitors in.

 Numbers are limited so if you would like to come along see a variety of birds close up and learn about the birds that use the site and how we manage the site and monitor birds on the site please contact Matt Prior on This email address is being protected from spambots.
