Had my first swift of the year today. After walking down to school and seeing nothing out of the ordinary, Swallows, Greenfinch, I arrived at school and after settling down spotted a swift flying away from us. Its my first this year, and as such was very excited, which drew a few curious glances. sadly when I went out for a better look it had vanished.
However, that is not the end of this tale, because during my free period, I spotted another 3, or at least another 2, flying towards the school. sadly the views were glimps before they flew over the school, but either way, it was very exciting to see.
