Hirundines and greenshank
April 05, 2020 08:36PM
About 100 bank swifts over "Frog Pond" (immediately S of Freeman's Wood) 19:30.
Despite trying I could neither hear nor see any other species in the chaos.
1 greenshank very far S end of The Flood 19:50.

All of this I experienced during my allotted 60 minutes' outdoor exercise.

Stay well.

A truly amazing record Bill.

The mean date for the earliest Swift in Lancashire is 16 April but 100....Sand Martins?

Bank swifts. Not colliers.
