Uncommonly recorded and rarely as early as this (yes, late February is early for this species), let alone in wheel formation.

This is a really good sighting, Christine. Not only are they not particularly common, but they're rarely seen in tandem or wheel like this, and this is a very early date for them (they aren't usually seen until into March). Not sure how I missed it when it was posted back in late February - sorry.
