This last week !!

Hardly any time this last week for posting on the blog - (mainly due to lovely weather and long daylight hours to be outside)
Lee Mount - Swifts are definately down again this year with a max of 6 being the best we could manage all week. House Martins look to be struggling as well again with only 1 sighting over the house this week. In comparison Swallows seem to be ok with several groups through, mainly late evening. 3 Sand Martins went >W last Monday.
