Red-rumped Swallows

Spent the day at home today, in the garden, but only managed Common Buzzard (3) and a Whitethroat singing in the garden. I'd resisted the temptation to trawl over to Cley for the two Red-rumped Swallows all day, but when the news came through that they had moved to Weybourne I finally caved!! So in the evening sunshine I was watching two fabulous Red-rumped Swallows wheeling above the houses in the south of the village. I think these are only my second sighting in the UK of this species, the first at Cley in autumn during the nineties.
