Strange spectacle of a battle between a swift and a Starling. I can only assume that Starlings have taken over the nest hole the Swifts used last year on Briants Avenue and on returning the swift flew up to the hole, only to be met by an irate starling. The pair tumbled through the air with the swift being forced to the ground, stopping the traffic. A beeped horn separated the pair and the swift managed to take off again pursued by the starling over the rooftops.
