Since i spotted my first swallow of the new season, i had not seen any more. Even though we had good weather, that was until this morning. Spotted two flying around over the village.

Seen a few more swallows this morning. Which got me thinking, there will be plenty of mud for nest building.

I forgot to report I saw my first Swifts on Thursday. I think they were passing through as I've not seen any since.
