16th July

Usual walk over Roils produced nothing until I got to Tower Hill where a good number of Swallows were gathered. Suddenly alarm calls all around and a falcon shot through heading south, a Peregrine, within seconds it was a distant speck. 2 minutes later more alarm calls and what I can only think was the same bird comming back for a second pass, unfortunatly my camera was in its case as the bird flew directly over my head. Managed to get a few record shots but the camera was all set up wrong. A minute or two later and more alarm calls from the Swallows, this time a rather ratty looking Kestrel flew past. A few juv Linnerts at High Road Well Moor and a Great Spot over the House.
