First returning Swifts

I've just come back from a bank holiday weekend break in Faro, Portugal where from my hotel balcony I spent a good deal of time watching Common and Pallid Swifts and learning the subtle differences between them. It was perhaps fitting therefore that my next patch year tick came when several vocal (Common) Swifts flew over my house earlier this evening, making plenty of noise to announce their return.
