Chudleigh Swifts

There are still 21+ Swifts visible over the town this morning. That's as many as I've counted all summer, so no sign of any departure yet here. Numbers vary a lot through the days, presumably as birds move around to feed. Also nice to see Siskins and Greenfinches at the feeders daily - the first time the Siskins have persisted beyond mid-June, and the first regular Greenfinches for some years.
