Screaming swifts start the day!

An early start on the outer breakwater produced no cetaceans but as I sat searching the sea, I heard swifts screaming above. Six of them were drifting along in the south westerly breeze. I am sure our swift numbers have  noticeably dropped in recent years. I think all in all they are my favorites so it was nice to see and particularly hear them.
