There have been the odd one or two around the Wirral until yesterday evening, when I had 40+ hunting above my house.

Several Swifts just arrived over the rooftops in Torry, Aberdeen. Good to have them back.

Saw a couple over Hoylake today while I was sat outside listening to a Blackbird singing on a TV aerial. Happy moments.
