The Swifts are back. I am rather lucky to have a colony of Swifts who live in the eaves of my house and a house over the road for me. They've taken a very long time to arrive, but this morning I unmistakably heard them calling as they swooped past the window. They're actually pretty rare so I am lucky to have them but crikey having 20 of them swoop past your window makes a fair racket. You can hear them here.
I think my chances of getting a good photo of them is pretty small, but now I have a new camera I might have a go when the weather perks up a bit, at the moment it would be black bird against grey sky, not very photogenic!
