A pretty good year for swifts this year here in my part of the Midlands. We’ve got a flock of about 40 hanging out over our neck of town. And tonight we also caught sight of a Hobby that the swifts were carefully shadowing out of the area. Last year the swifts had migrated by 6th August so I’ve got to make sure to enjoy watching them while I have the chance.
