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.
Before the rains came.
