It was one of the last Egrets to leave the roost.

c 50 Pinks over Scruton Saturday 10.30 am.
I would suggest that it is a very late swallow. About 20 years ago I had a swallow at Ripon racecourse in late November and that weekend a handful of others were seen in various parts of the Vale of York. It would appear that there is frequently a late movement.

I have a first hand account of a swallow hanging on at Gt Ayton allotments (father in law saw it twice this week). Can anybody else confirm? Difficult to think of what it might be mistaken for.

Hope this post is allowed.
I still have lots of copies of my Charity Wildlife Calendar available if anyone would like a copy.
Calendars are £10, with ALL profits raised going to a Mental Health Charity.
The charity CALM offer support and raise the awareness of Male Mental Helth issues and in particular Male Suicide.
As someone who has battled mental health issues myself for 30 years this is a cause very close to my heart.
All photos are taken by myself and we’re on course to raise over £1000 again this year.
If anyone would like a copy please drop me a message
Many thanks
