Lee Mount and Ploughcroft

A poor showing the last few days over Lee Mount now the Swifts are heading south. These are one of our first summer visitors to head back towards Africa even though they are one of the last migrants to arrive! A maximum of 5 since Saturday, that's all.

However it was a nice surprise to check the gap in the hill at Ploughcroft by the ski slope at around 10:30 today - there were 50+ Swifts feeding voraciously - but they had moved on by lunch time.

Also this morning, an adult Hobby over Lee Mount circling on thermals around 10.25 and drifting >SE
