RED-RUMPED SWALLOW came into roost with over 40 House Martin and Swallow at Porth Hellick
As I was returning from work to go home, I saw Smoothy at the junction of Rose Hill. 'RED-RUMPED SWALLOW!' I pulled over and for the next twenty minutes we had cracking views of it at close range feeding with 10+House Martin and 4 Swallow.
At Holy Vale there was a Turtle Dove and a quick scan off Porth Hellick produced at least 20 Manx Shearwater going west. On the pool there were 40+each of House Martin and Swallow and the half an hour before dark, the RED-RUMPED SWALLOW came into roost with the rest of the hirundines.
