We still have six pairs of swifts feeding young. Unusual but not surprising given the adverse weather in May and June.

Make the most of the swifts!

Most swifts will be leaving us soon. Enjoy them while you can. Here in North Yorkshire there seem to be quite a few late breeding swifts, delayed no doubt by the cold May and June. My sketch from the nest camera shows two nestlings which will not fledge until mid August.
