House Martins in the rain

Local patch: today at 14.00 pm a large flock of about 100-150 House Martins was caught in the sudden rainstorm and began to circle around the patch, quite low above the houses. Quite a large number of birds for the area! Other today's highlights in the patch included a low-flying and loud-calling Raven above the house, the usual Tree Sparrow always within the flock of House Sparrows and a Coal Tit calling from some nearby gardens. Also a Great Banded Grayling.
