Summer is on the way!

A really dire week for weather with wind in the north east and few good birding days. However, there were a few good times when I did get out with the camera, so for this blog just a few photos as reminders. There was one morning when the sun shone so I took advantage of the good light but it was still cold...


Ringed Plovers nest on the Spit

Starling ...unsure which way to go.

Such charismatic birds!

Chaffinch in full walk...Slipe Field walk...Slipe Field  

Whitethroat ...singing for a mate.

Great Crested Grebe...Whites Creek of several in the harbour,currently.

Oystercatcher in the mud.

 All three Terns are now here...great news!!

Little Tern

Sandwich Tern

Common Tern

Little and Common Tern fishing in the 'new' channel.

...but best of all and hence the title to this blog....The Swifts have arrived!!!

Not the greatest of photos but never easy birds to capture let alone on a dull miserable morning. The last of the summer visitors to arrive and always a real pleasure to see the first ones...great!
