Friday: 3 Chiffs now in, in trees round Bishopthorpe Ings. Buzzard over the house.
Then on the way home on the bike after work, 14 silhouettes, high up, lumbered out of the southwest in a hazy sky. Could these be Cranes? Panic! Shot back home, grabbed the bins and dashed back out, causing worried glances from the visiting in laws. Found the giants. Whooper Swans! Not quite what I was hoping for, but pretty cool for a house tick in the middle of an estate.
