Autumn migration,already ??

Is it really time for autumn migration? Last night on the way home from Whitsome,Duns, we witnessed some bird "gatherings". First of all, many swallows were lining up on the wires, next we saw a large party of swifts and on arrival at South Yearle a flock of 16 mistle thrushes flew over and settled in the conifers in the field at the back of the house.
We also had a willow warbler in the garden and these cute baby swallows that had just fledged (second brood) were lined up on the roof, being fed by their parents, but also being encouraged to "come and join us in the sky and find your own food" by numerous other family members.
