Alpine Swift - Crawley 28/3/15

Luckily jammed in on this bird after a very hectic day at work. It was distant for me but great to see and was only my second sighting of an Alpine Swift in Sussex, my first being in 2008.

Although I saw large flocks in South Africa in Janurary, my last sighting in Britain was way back in 2010 on 29th March, the day I also saw a Pallid Swift, so fingers crossed for the same in Sussex. As good as Swifts are, Alpines are by far my favourite.
