Monday 7th July

Heavy rain and thunderstorms were the order of the day. Large numbers of Swifts were seen racing ahead of the storm clouds in Barming. Lots of birds in the garden seemed agitated and I clocked up a count of 13 species in 20 minutes as the storm brewed. Unfortunately this included a Jay with Blackbird nestling in beak, the third to be predated by a jay in my garden this year.

I had all the swifts over pittswood on monday evening. - 100's of them, as you say, just ahead of the storm. Quite a site

Super photo Adam. Pleased to hear from your previous posts that you've had more sightings of the White Admirals - I shall have to go and see if I can find them when the weather brightens up a bit.
