Quick Post

It's been a quiet week, not too many birds the past couple of days in the garden but the Mistle Thrush has been back. Walking back home from dropping the little one at nursery I almost got dive bombed by a bird flying straight at me.

I looked about and realised it was a Swift and there were another 3 nearby too, all flying low. I added to my list when I got home and then realised it wasn't on my overall list at all. Today was the first time i've seen one up close enough to positively id it. I also realised over the past couple of weeks that i've seen Swallows, House Martins, Sand Martins and now a Swift. I usually have trouble confirming id's with these so very pleased!
