Swifts and Stormies!
I awoke this morning to see four Swifts winging past our house which is a nice way to start a day. Better still was to come at Strumble when three seemingly seperate Storm Peterels (European) fluttered by us whilst we were doing a porpoise count between 2/3 pm. They were difficult to track alighting on the water and getting lost in the big surf so it could possibly have been two or three. I am not sure but I think these are the earliest Stormies I have seen at Strumble although I do remember seeing them occasionally in June. They were certainly living up to their name. Ps. if Ray wilkinson is up to surfing the net, get well soon from we Strumblers!
