Confirmation of my earlier Tweet.

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.
