Around midday huge numbers of Swifts were flying SW in a force 4 westerly.
I counted 300 in about 15 minutes, and the passage continued at the same pace when I stopped counting Swifts to focus on what else might be moving.

I logged 47 House Martins SW in 40 minutes. No Sand Martins however.

Other than these, just one Wheatear at Blackstone Edge.

Some nice counts there Pete. I recall X hundreds of Swifts at Warland one evening, a long time ago, whizzing past within a couple of meters. I can still see it.!! Fantastic.
