So Swift I missed it!

Summer migrants continue to appear in a trickle, rather than the rush expected about now. Missed a Swift (early!) today, seen by a couple of folk in a group I was leading. Sometimes there's no justice! But definite visible migration today, with 1200+ Meadow Pipits W/hr as well as 30+ Swallows and 40+ Sand Martins.

A Tawny Owl flying through one of the small areas of woodland was an unexpected bonus and brings the Reserve list up to 121. 178 for the year is, however, looking decidedly optimistic!
