After a pretty trying day's birding, Graham and I were treated this
afternoon. WHile sinking a celebratory Crown on Graham's Balcony a Wood
Swallow was heard overhead. This Masked Wood-Swallow was joined by another,
then another, and as it seems to go with these guys lately, the numbers
continued to swell until 120-150 were hawking insects above us. Slowly more
WS's, later ID'd as White-Brows, joined, another flock of between 120-150. I
hope they hang around for a while.

Their arrival seems to coincide with prevailing wind conditions. In this
case westerlies I think, but I actually didn't take notice!
