A few weeks ago a forward party of House Martins arrived but they did not hang a round and we have been watching the skies for more to come.
Finally the Swallows have arrived and are busy nest building in the barns and slowly but surely the House Martins are returning to build their precarious nests under the eaves.
Every year a Swallow sits in the same place on the telephone wire and natters away – is it the same bird each year? We wonder…. but it doesn’t really matter we just enjoy seeing them come safely back for another year.
