Alpine Swift - Chafford Hundred, Essex 5th April 2010

This super bird was watched often at close range for over an hour at Chafford Hundred near Lakeside Essex. As the clouds cleared late in the afternoon the bird gained more height was lost and was presumably the same bird that was seen about an hour later at Rainham Marshes.

Swifts are one of my favourite birds and this is one of the best.
