Comments: Could see things had changed by mid morning and the sky was becoming active. Nothing special but a vast improvement on first thing. All Swifts west, LBBG's W and NW, BHG split between W and S, Lapwings W, Swallows W, Curlews NW. Sorry, spelling mistake in titles noted, but too late to alter it now... more haste, less speed!
