SwiftWatch 2014

Every year I keep a weather eye out for the return of the Swifts and this morning spotted my first two, swiftly followed (see what I did there?) by several more over the course of the day.  By this evening there were small gangs of half a dozen screeching in delight around the houses.  I love this time of year.

Not seen any here on the Welsh border yet. Lucky you!

Hello Twiglet! They're much later here this year than usual. In the past they've arrived as early as 21 April, so I've been watching out for them since about then - was starting to get a bit concerned that they might have got lost!!

Hooray! Glad they made it.. We used to watch for them when we lived in Hay.
