Alpine Swift at Crawley

Arrived to see the Alpine Swift warm up just as
it dropped off the V A building and head east 10 seconds
in view when it came off the roost.

Sunday afternoon walk

At 3pm I started my walk to the dew pond
at the Burgh seeing Red-legged and Grey partridge
first yellowhammers in the bushes.
A Peregrine went past kestrel with common Buzzards
in the distance 2 Red Kite one close but low over fields
11 Corn Bunting in the same bush at dew pond area.
Then wind got up and Rain set in back to the car and home.
