Swifts 25-07-2005

It certainly fits with the weather Brian. Maybe we would have got some of these yesterday if it hadn’t been for the very low cloud and fog? Just checked outside here now and not a Swift in sight, but Black headed Gulls going noticably east!

Queensbury, West Yorks.
1000hrs to 1500hrs.
Steady flow of Swifts over Queensbury all > E with some House Martins and Swallows in amongst. The peak seemed to be over lunchtime, although that was the only real time that I could count them. During the walk to and from work which is approx 5 mins each way I counted 175 all fast and low going directly east.
