Full House

A timely opportunity to complete the Hirundine set - after close encounters with both Swallows (here) and Sand Martins (here) in the last fortnight - with several family parties of House Martins collecting mud in the Country Park the other day.

These fabulous, characterful birds are the subject of an across-town survey I've been co-ordinating this summer, which (thanks to the involvement of the local community) is providing the first ever comprehensive dataset of breeding birds here in Filey.

(and a photobomber for good effect)
