White-rumped Swifts, 16th Oct

A White-rumped Swift came past me 4 times in 5 hours while i waited for close vultures on the Pena Falcon but only on 2 flypasts was it close enough to photograph. Photos later revealed that it was actually 2 birds - one had 3 new inner primaries and the other had 2. A very strong north wind and the birds speed meant that all i got were record shots.
