A Swift Return

8th May.  At last, the Swifts have returned to Killingworth Lake.  Eight, maybe ten flew in the area this evening.

Forget-me-not species probably growing as a garden escape.
The light was really good for a short time, but it wasn’t long before the storm clouds began to accumulate.  I didn’t hang around too long, as heavy rain looked a certainty, although I fact it hasn’t started even now.  The Grey Heron flew up and down by the reed-bed as Swallows and at least five Common Terns flew over the lake.

  1. That's good to see. Everything seems to be somewhat delayed this year.
