Observation details

Was out birding and attention drawn skywards by an American Goldfinch. Caught sight of the Swifts actively feeding. Flying fast, staying just above tree tops. I am certain of three birds but moving so fast there could have been more. They moved further away but back again to the same area multiple times, as I stayed in one place and watched with my camera.
