I opted to take the bike I wanted to scout a few areas for something other then bleeding Whitethroats. A mix terrain of fields, lanes and cycle paths was the route. Nowhere special.
In one field it was positively heaving with Finches and the odd Skylark. I couldn't get near the Chaffinches, the Greenfinches nor the adult Goldfinches. The juveniles were obviously not human wary as I able to creep up on them as they helped themselves to the crop
I stopped at rough grass/meadow type field as there was a sizeable Swift flock circling it but also at the bottom of the field was an old tatty Barn Owl box, the plan was to wait.....and wait to see if anything emerged from it.
Probably my favourite Swift image of the day, hopefully you can make out the bug.
