    If not should see some next week in Northumberland.

    Saw my first ones today on the Tweed at Horncliffe!
    Hopefully they will have arrived in my part of West Yorkshire when I return on Friday. Late though this year!

    Saw only one swallow yesterday, it was late or lost, the rest are all gone...

    (Eurasian) Swifts are still here in abundance mind, stocking up on the last of the abundant insects before heading north over the Sahara… Swifts are brilliant, a life on the wing.
