Swift - Chatsworth

The Swifts have been back for about a month now but not in big numbers, the cold temperatures and consequent lack of aerial insects can't be good for them. They breed in the older parts of Darley Dale with generally about a dozen pairs in the village.
I've been waiting for a blue sky to photograph them and it finally arrived this morning, but not for long!
Several brood of Mandarin on the river and a couple of female Gooseander. Two skeins of Canada Geese, totalling about 80 birds, flew over heading North which was unusual.
