Possibly migrants coming south from further north.
I was fishing on the Beauly a few years ago, around this time. All of a sudden I was aware of around thirty or so martins skimming the river surface after about twenty minutes they had all gone again.

Drifting across Farmoor last week and there were 30 or 40 Martins hawking on the water. As said above, probably migrating from further north.

Was out on Chew Valley earlier this week which proved to be extremely good with 15 quality trout to the boat for me and my pal and espied half a dozen Martins hawking the water after a hatch of Grenadier type buzzers.
