Zoom Webinar

Wimbledon and Putney Commons Winter Talk 2022

The Charismatic Swift by Edward Mayer

7.00pm Tuesday 15th February 2022 via Zoom Webinar

Edward Mayer of Swift Conservation will be talking about Swifts, the most spectacular and charismatic urban bird, their sad decline and what we can all do about it.

Edward has devoted the past 18 years to working for Swifts, having noticed that many of the Swifts in his local population in NW London were vanishing. He set up a website providing a wealth of information and guidance, and then recruited helpers and set about establishing groups to assist Swifts both here in the UK and in Europe too. The results have been surprising, and he will tell us about them in his richly illustrated talk.

Holding an Event on Wimbledon and Putney Commons

As the Commons are now a popular location for events, you will need to seek permission from the Ranger's Office before organising any formal or semi-formal event on or across the Commons.  This is to ensure that there is no clash of events that would spoil the enjoyment of participants, or negatively impact our visitors, other users or  indeed have a negative impact on the Commons - a protected Site of Special Scientific Interest.

Whilst we are limited to the size and type of event we can host here on the Commons, we are always happy to see if we can help.  Please complete the Enquiry Form and one of our team will get back to you to discuss your request.  

As a charity, we do charge for events on the Commons.  The charges will depend on the nature of the event.  Please contact the Ranger's Office for further information.
