Flying around a seventh century coaching inn, or possibly fifth :unsure:, the sky was full of HMs.
Having a wonderful time in the sunshine. I imagine they have been nesting there for a thousand years. I occasionally caught snatches of the Latin vulgate.

Must be some very old HMs :D

I have seen no sign of my Swifts this week. Have they started back to sub-Saharan Africa or gone higher in the sky above the clouds? :shrug:

I think most of them departed when the cooler,damper weather kicked in during the first 10 days of August. Empty skies until may 2018 :(

Not seen any swallows here for the past 2-3 days. Don't care for these empty skies.
