bird behaviour, Swift diary 2011

A Swift return

A single Swift returned to roost in our neighbour’s loft space today. We had wonderful views of the bird arriving at about 6pm, first circling the local area then approaching the nest site which it last visited in August 2010. This is a very early bird and equals my earliest Swift sighting. Last year the first returned on 27th April. It is stirring to see the wonderful shape of a Swift again and I literally yell with joy on seeing my first! Enjoy them, they are only here for three months.
