early April in the Balearics....



.... at least if 'the Balearics' was a Tapas restaurant here in Stoke Newington. The accompanying (lousy) shots would normally appear on our local Hackney Wildlife website, but because of the anomalies of the uploading system (which doesn't accept particularly small files), here will do just fine for now.

Lousy shots maybe, great birds without question - the first two of an Osprey which gunned north overhead this morning (3rd), and the latter two of an Alpine Swift which graced the same urban airspace the day before yesterday for all of 60 seconds. Patch-watching = unbridled happiness.
