Swallows arriving

Postby SCRABBLER » Mon Apr 15, 2013 11:40 am

Happen to be looking out of the window this morning and saw the first swallows of the season flying about.
They must have come up on the southerly wind over the weekend.
Now I feel that Summer is really only just round the corner!! :) :AA

I saw a couple of swallows when I was in Staples Garden centre this morning-- lovely to hear after all this beastly weather.!

My house martins should be arriving soon - back to the same nest they have had for years. They built another one
attached on the old one a couple of years back, sort of semi detached, but it fell to bits at the end of the summer.

Windows cleaners will be asked not to clean window just below the nest!
