Skies alive with Swifts

               Plenty Swifts this evening
                                        Bill open, fly catching




A hectic day with a morning at the B.R.I. and catching up to the work load pm so a couple of Foxhill dog walks and 15 minutes sky watching from the garden was the best I could do today.
The sky was alive with Swifts over Foxhill this evening , all feeding and slowly moving >N, possible a feeding party moving ahead of tomorrows bad forecast of thunderstorms.
Very few Swallows about at the moment, probably all busy nesting.

Another set back for Lynda, hence the hospital visit this a.m. finding  the radiation has dried out her skin so much that its sparked off a skin disease on her head causing large and painful sores but hopefully a cause of antibiotics should clear it or its back again next week to a dermatologist.
On the bright side most of her medicines have been cut down saving us about 1 hour a day.

Nice Swift shots Bri, you seem to get some passage at your elevation whereas ours are usually the local ones till the weather deteriorates - watch out for the Hobby !!

Sorry to hear of Lynda's problems Brian.
Hope you both get some relief soon.
At least the storms might top-up Raggalds Flood.
Kind regards
John.

Very few local Swifts up here Dave till post breeding, most are moving through especially before a forecast of storms.

Thanks John, just another blip.
Hope you,re right about the flood.
