It turned out nice!

It was a pleasant, though cold evening at Druridge tonight, after todays heavy rain. The sunshine after the showers brought the swifts to Druridge. It was really quite strange, we were sat in the little hide and at first I counted 42 swifts over the fields, then scanned the pools, when i turned my head back to the skies, there were many more swifts, at least 152 to be precise! All moving in a generally westerly direction, many stayed over the woods but most of them continued to move inland....

Not much else to report other than that.

only another few weeks now before we have to scan the skies hard for a swift, seems no time at all I was anticipating their arrival, Cuckoo's have almost stopped calling here already!
