"..........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!!!
