Wilsden 04-06-2006 PM

Yesterday afternoon and into the evening a large (assumed) thunder front advancing from the north and north west induced a movement of Swifts here, if not younger birds, quite possibly a feeding movement. In excess of 100 individuals were noted streaming overhead at intervals, all strict NNW. also two groups of Oystercatchers, a 3 and a 4 passed west, calling as they went.

Anyone else get the Swifts yesterday afternoon?
