BBO Wildlife Trust 8h
Swifts live for a long time. A bird found dying in Oxford in 1964 had been ringed 16 years earlier, and so was around 18 years old. It's estimated this bird had flown 4 million miles in its lifetime, the same as flying to the moon and back 8 times.

Beautiful little egret captured on camera by Henry Manisty. Did you know, the white feathers from their neck plumes were used for making hats and were more valuable than gold? We think they look much better on the egrets!

Swifts are amazing birds. They can sleep on the wing, a fact confirmed when a French pilot flying over enemy lines with his engines off in WW1 found himself among a flock of apparently motionless swifts.

This is early, perhaps a reflection on its 'inner city' location, and the hard work of Wild Oxford volunteers clearing the fen!

You're correct - this is a pyramidal orchid. They can sometimes be seen in roadside verges too.
