Our first swallow has arrived! He came yesterday and again today. Roll on summer! (Yes, I know the saying, but I can hope, can't I?) Actually, we are having a pretty good taste of summer already here.
African or european?
Here too in hampshire yesterday. Saw 2 so must be summer.
Saw my first one last Thursday - quite a surprise as it swooped over the grass in front of me - and the second one the following day. Two swallows definitely must make a summer!
Our first swallow arrived last Friday. We now have a pair roosting by their old nest. They get shut in at night and I have to go out early to let them out.
Cairnsie, I had to go online and make sure, because to me it's just a swallow! According to Wikipedia, it is the barn swallow, correct song, correct colouring and correct tail. Does that make it the European swallow?
lol i was joking its a monty python joke. Im not sure lol
Saw our first 'hirondelle' in beautiful down town Alnwick today, already swooping along a dark passageway to it's regular nesting site. Jumpin' Jehosophat , but it's good to see them again !
Saw loads tonight flying over the allotments we are up in durham
