This evening I have seen the first few swifts flying over my road in Gravesend – so surely summer must be just around the corner?  Our visitors will soon fill our evenings with their screaming attics for the next 3 months.  Compared with previous years, their arrival date is only a couple of days later than their mean arrival date – see my previous post.

Have you seen swifts near your home yet?

  1. I also saw swifts over swanscombe at 10.30am today.

  2. This year (2014) the swifts arrived back in my road in Gravesend on 5 May, which is about the average – see my previous post.
    Have you seen or heard your first swift this year yet?
