Thanks to Phil Boardman for these great shots of the Little Swift at New Brighton - I really should have found the time to pop over and see it, but that's the way it goes sometimes.
Sources with far better memories than me have reminded me that it was the Netherfield, Notts bird I saw snoozing on a railway bridge before zooming around our heads back in 2001 - far too long ago.
Caught up with the tubby wonder in Spain and North Africa too, but New Brighton would have been nice.
Best make do with Phil's shots from yesterday...
And thanks to Ron Jackson for sending me a link to his wonderful videos from a recent trip to Brazil - you can watch the full playlist on YouTube here.
Bare throated Bellbird - what a star!
Eyes to the skies everyone, eyes to the skies...
