Swifts moving through.

First young fledged crows out at Foxhill

                                Parents close by.

As usual the weather took up for Monday leaving a bright clear day with a fresh E>4.
Hoped to get to Fly Flatts this evening to find DJSs Ring Ouzels but her indoors had other plans and we ended up at Tesco.
When we got back the sky was perfect for movers with bright sun to the west and dark sky to the east so 30 minutes of  eastward sky watching, as expected, proved fruitful.
Swallows moved through and Swifts headed in the same direction of >NE along with LBBs and several Woodpigeons.

c 40 Swallows
7 SWIFT
38 Woodpigeons
16 LBB gulls
2 Curlew
4 Alba Wagtails
All were moving >NE.

Those Crows are early, must be feeding on some good stuff up there in the mild climate!
Good do getting Swifts through tonight up there as well. Hope you enjoyed the shopping trip?
