Swift’s flight

July 24, 2011

Swifts speed around the village rooftops on the warmer evenings. Their numbers have been increased by this year’s young.  Their stay is relatively short – this year I recorded their arrival on 6th May. Last year most had gone by mid-August, although a straggler passed through the village on 24th September. To me they are the birds of high summer and when they go Autumn is not far away – but for the time being we need to watch the joyfully acrobatic flight whilst it lasts.
