Newquay Harbour: 1 m Blackcap, 7 Swift. Also of interest, 1 Swallow circled several times and I noticed it was carrying something. After a few minutes the bird dropped what it was carrying and on closer inspection it appears to be one of its chicks that possibly choked after trying to eat a feather by mistake. (S Grose)
