Wednesday 22nd August

A nice surprise this morning, spotted two Jay near the feeders, they normally visit this time of year, probably from over the channel, and stay on and off until the spring.
In the afternoon spent time watching the swallows picking up insects off the Wild Parsnip, not sure if it is the same team each time or fresh ones passing through, but they all do the same thing, come over from the airfield flying west across the tip. Tried to catch them actually feeding, but unfortunately not today, couple of pics attached, one shows how they navigate through the grass.
