One for the harbour

The harbour got in on the action today. Got a call from Steve Smith to say that Paul Morton was watching a Red-rumped Swallow 'right now' sat on wires on East Street Wareham.
Was virtually out of the door before he could finish the sentence, time was off the essence.
And it proved to be. It was still there on arrival and what a cracking bird, just sat there warming up in the morning sunshine. There was just enough time to take a few quick shots before it was off over Bestwall and lost to view

For a few more lucky people the bird was refound about an hour later over Swineham Farm
