Swift walk

With ominous rain clouds gathering and wind speeds hitting force 7, I made a lunchtime dash for the (now aptly-named) flood on the west side of the Nunnery Lakes, over which 2 Swift (132) were doing their thing - exhilarating!

The high water levels were probably responsible for a P.B. in the form of 3 Little Egret, the most I've seen together on the reserve. Cue reminiscence about when I were a lad, men were men, birders were birders and Little Egrets were as rare as rocking horse shit.

Percentage of target to date - 85%
Distance cycled - 266.1mls / 428.2km
Latest addition - Swift (132) 26 April
