Raglan

Main Sighting: Hirondelles
Over the the last three days a large flock of Swallows and House Martins( Approx 30) have been hawking insects incessantly all day across my neighbours and my garden.This came to a crescendo yesterday evening with at least 6 Swifts joining the party. This has continued this morning. I have never seen this activity go on for so long before. Is this unusual?
