This week saw the return of our local swallows.  They were a bit later than normal but they came back to a wonderful bright evening; their beige tinted fronts turned to a warm brown in the low, late evening sunshine.

The mornings are a little noisier now as they sing their burbling, scratchy song that is oddly melodic.  The wire outside the bedroom window is a favourite place to welcome the new day but it’s a reassuring summer sound that has been missing up to now in our dawn chorus.  We now await the house martins…
