Wilsden 07-07-2008

Swifts going west again..... in "flap" mode (c) 2008
1845 - 2030hr
W F3, 13degC, clear, 8/8 reducing 2/8, QNH 997 steady.
A poor day with many exceptionally heavy, thundery showers but now improving. Swifts were the only moving birds in the sky tonight. All were going west into the wind. Initially only a few but then as the sky opened progresively many started to pass at all ranges.
Swift 86 > W
