After the foul weather of the last two days these swifts were taking full advantage of a sunny, warm windy evening at cayton carrs sewage works last evening. A fantastic aerial display from up to 50 birds, frantically feeding before the next weather front arrives. Identification of rare swifts can be a problem, a range of form and colour in this one species is quite evident. Notice the full crops on some of these birds.
