Batten down the hatches, it could be a harsh winter. Have not seen any swallows since last Thursday. None last Saturday and none today. Skies seem empty. If indeed they have gone, then it is 3-4 weeks earlier than last year.
Well whilst out on my walk this morning. I seen more swallows than I could count. Some were flying around feeding, but in the main most were flying over toward the coast. Great to see though, even if they may be leaving.
