Wilsden Swifts 24-07-2007


Brian after receiving your mail, have just looked at the skies over here and find that Swifts are going over > SW at the rate of c20 in 10 minutes.... equates to c120 per hour on a broad front (only 1/4 sky looked at for this count so could be 4x more). Sky overhead almost clear except for a little high cirrus... however more dense and obscure over in the west.


Queensbury Swifts 24-07-2007

Queensbury 1800-1930hrs Sunny, W>4-5

Swifts pouring over Foxhill Queensbury all >S moving fast and direct.

Total from casual count, many missed...226

Also Common Gulls were present this morning in Foxhill park, this is nearly a month earlier than usual.
