Swallows are my favourite bird andI I get so excited when I see the first one in spring.
I thought they'd all flown away this year but there were six swooping over the pond this morning. They were this years babies as they had shorter tail feathers. I understand that the adults fly away first and the young follow afer. It's amazing that they can find their way. I've often wonder if the kids go to the same area as mum and dad, it would be even more amaing if they did.
Ah well,roll on next april.
