Swifts + Edit

My first Swift of the year was this one in the roof space nest could only see the wing tip at first so have moved the camera over , still can't seem to get sound as I can through the TV ,when the two birds are together and suddenly scream out it frightens the life out of you . Not great quality but it is pitch black in there.

I seem to have got the sound to work although there is no sound on this clip,looks like I will have to move the camera again, watch out for the flat fly that runs across its back  !!!!!!!!!!



Monday 23rd 9am two birds present with mutual preening, entrance on the left

Thanks Guys its not brilliant footage but for a fiver what can you expect, hope to get some sound, it did surprise me that both birds would roost at the site.They preen each other often and as its pitch black it is quite rough.
