Fabulous wildlife sighting along Madeira Drive Green Wall as a flock of swifts descend

It’s the first swift record for the Madeira Drive Green wall – and in style, as over 50 birds descended this evening to feed above and along Madeira Drive and Duke’s Mound.

Some birds were even flying a few feet above the beach, and along the sea.

As it was drizzly and overcast there were few people about to appreciate it, so here’s a couple of videos that capture something of the moment.
