Swales Moor

Ringby Lane for vis mig this morning for nearly 2 hrs but it was nearly impossible to count genuine 'movers'. There were so many birds around the site feeding and moving about all over the place it was impossible to tell which direction they were going in or more likely they were just feeding - with 130+ Swallows, 12 Skylarks, 200+ Meadow Pipits, 90+ Goldfinch and 80+ Linnets.
The highlight was a late Swift >W at 09:05
3 Sparrowhawks (1 >SW and 2 >NE)
2 Common Buzzards >SW
1 L B B Gull >NE
8 House Martin >NE
2 Chaffinch >NE
12 Siskin >SW
