    First arrival to Vigo (NW Spain)

    Dear all,

    With an amazing date repeatability  the first Swift of the season has just arrived (20:10) to one of my boxes at Vigo (NW Spain) .

    I was very lucky for being  outside to watch it briefly flying high above the house. Just seconds later it made a terrific stoop to enter into the box without  hesitation and at the first attempt. He/she quickly sat at the nest and started with the usual preening post-arrival ritual. Now it´s resting quietly at the  nest.

    After many days watching the skies (high power binoculars) I had not seen any other Common swift. Pallid swifts arrived to this area one month ago.

    I guess it´s the same bird that the previous two years arrived to the same box matching exactly this same day: April 12 in 2016 -leap year-  and April 13 in 2015!. It´s just incredible how they can adjust so precisely their travelling time to get that.

    Enjoy the season!.

                  Dear
                  all,

                  With an
                  amazing date repeatability  the first
                  Swift of the season has just
                  arrived (20:10) to one of my boxes at
                  Vigo (NW Spain) .

                  I was very
                  lucky for
                  being  outside
                  to
                  watch it briefly
                  flying high above the house.
                  Just seconds
                  later it
                  made a terrific stoop to enter into the box without  hesitation and at the
                  first attempt. He/she quickly sat at the
                  nest and started with the
                  usual preening post-arrival ritual.
                  Now it´s resting quietly at the 
                  nest.

                  After
                  many days watching
                  the skies (high power binoculars) I had not seen any
                  other Common swift. Pallid
                  swifts arrived to this
                  area
                  one month ago.

                  I guess
                  it´s the same bird that the previous two years
                  arrived to
                  the same box matching exactly
                  this
                  same day: April 12 in 2016 -leap
                  year-  and April 13 in
                  2015!.
                  It´s just incredible how they can adjust so
                  precisely their travelling
                  time to get that.

                  Enjoy
                  the season!.

                    I´ll do it Ulrich!.

                    As  usual at this early time of the season, he/she left the box quite early (7:52) to spend away the whole day until dusk. No idea where they go  because I cannot see a single bird in this area in spite of an intensive search.  

                    Weather is dry and rather warm (max. 18 C) and there are already good amounts of flying insects at the garden, but for some reasons the - still scarce - Swifts  prefer/need to go to some other feeding areas (maybe wetlands?). Who knows …

                    Best regards to everyone,

                    Porfirio

                    Muchas gracias, Profirio! It would be interesting to find these feeding aereas at the beginning of the season, I guess the Swifts are more numerous there and

                      It would be interesting to find these feeding aereas at the beginning of the season, I guess the Swifts are more numerous there and more palpable. Such aereas in Berlin are the places where the first Swifts are usually seen, c. 2 weeks earlier than further downtown.
                      Have a great season!
