Durlston purple patch

Richard's Pipit, Hawfinch and a British record 118 Bullfinch over in the past couple of days was trumped today by a Pallid Swift today. First picked up at distance by Hamish, we only initially had the briefest of views but new immediately it looked good. It was heading south and soon disappeared behind trees. After a rather long run and some anxious waiting we relocated it quite a way west. It circled around a couple of times and then headed off west

Also moving, Woodlark, Crossbill and Bullfinch
