09/05/2020 - The Swifts Have Arrived


This morning around 0700 hrs I had the great pleasure of seeing a group of swifts circling high above my garden, I reckon there were around 30 in the group, it certainly did give me a big lift this morning. When you think these beautiful birds have travelled from Africa, also arriving will be a lot of reed warblers, which I enjoy listening to when I am on the River Beult, though rarely seen. Another warbler it’s rare to see is the grasshopper warbler but you cannot mistake of its call which sound like a quality centre pin reel.
