1st August 2022

St Germans: Sadly, no House Matins nested along our road, this year. Tonight, however, a huge number of Swallows and Martins were flying together over the marsh and roosting (precariously) on the rigging of an abandoned boat. So that’s 64. (Andy Blonden)

Feock: Please could you add Swift to my list bringing my total to 28.
Still no swallows or martins though. They really seem elusive this year. (Rosalind Smith)

7th July 2022

Liskeard: At least 15+ Swifts and 5+ House Martins hawking insects over the bungalow this evening. The swifts even gave a short, spine tingling scream. Wonderful.
