lots of groups (c50/100 per group) of Swallows passing SE/S over the lake in the early afternoon (presumably heading from the Wye to the Usk valleys and then on down the Usk Valley - see postings here and on GOS website) Peter Jenkins estimated up to 3000 birds in a 10 min period, but ringing then took precedent over watching - groups still passing to mid afternoon whenever watching resumed
