very busy today - seem to find it difficult to get into where they are nesting or are delivering what they need to so quickly - how can I tell which swift they are?

Recoding your swifts

RSPB just launched a new website for recording swifts at
If it is a swift in the UK nesting its more than likely to be Apus apus (though we do get records of alpine swift Apus melba) . But have a look at this link as their are other birds that can be mistaken for swifts
