STOP PRESS! SWIFT Sp. with White Crescent at Holme, Norfolk!

http://www.birdforum.net/showpost.php?p=3211676&postcount=24272

"..........was at Holme today when we spotted a Swift fly over with what looked like a Ring ouzel type White crescent on its chest. Its under tail looked a bit pale as well.

Very odd but it didnt look like an Alpine swift to me so just put it down as a aberrant swift, the bloke at the Holme shop also didnt think it was anything weird. ..."


Of course its weird – whatever it is, its not a 'normal' swift! It may only be an aberrant swift, but it gets the adrenalin going for me! Well done for capturing those shots Pete and for letting everyone know!

White-collared Swift maybe – that looks Ring Ouzel like!!!

First for Britain – that would pack out the carparks, the road and village on a Bank Holiday Monday!!!
