Swifts - Walsden

 At last - the Strines Street swifts have arrived!  Four of them in evidence today.  Screeching round our house too.  I always thought they screeched when in family parties with their young.  But these haven't yet had time to find their nesting place, let alone rear young.  Usually a small colony nesting on Beswick Street.  But these not arrived yet.

Thanks for the update Sandra. They are very 'thin on the ground' so to speak. Lets hope more arrive before too long though they have certainly been on the decline for a few years now.
