Watched a pair of house martins collecting mud this morning along old railway line at Maunby. Also watched whitethroat, garden and willow warblers singing, and saw first swifts very high heading north.

At last, a "boy-racer" in the sky - Swift seen from the garden, SE border of Richmond today at 1pm.
Confirmation of earlier Tweet, Sand Martins are nesting in beck bank by Skeeby Bridge. Precarious eh?! I will try and keep an eye on them whilst out on the bike but I will need to pay heed to the "boy-racers" on the road approaching that bridge!!

Another garden bonus just now, Marsh Harrier moving north over the west of Richmond. It is missing several secondaries in each wing so should be individually identifiable if somebody else sees it.
