    A pair of swallows have just returned to the barn . I hope the other pair return soon.

    I love it when the swallows return. Hopefully might see the first ones here in West Yorkshire in the next few days.
    If not should see some next week in Northumberland.

    Haven't seen any swallows or swift's yet. Was lucky enough to see my first osprey of the year 31/3 over a local loch. Wonderful time of the year when the weather is like this.

    The swallows always come before the swifts.
    The swifts are the last to come and the first to go, the Lotus Elans of the bird world.
