Maer Valley, Exmouth

On a damp, miserable day with sea mist coming over Foxholes & High Land of Orcombe, there was a great display by some 50+ Swifts and 100+ House Martins from around 1pm for over 2 hours - then visibility really closed in. The House Martins were hawking over fields of wheat, with the Swifts at all levels inc. almost head height, twisting & turning as they caught insects. Second day running that the Swifts have been over the Maer Valley - approx 20 that I saw yesterday.
