In a small barn, in a place that I know and love, a family of swallows have set up home. These incredible birds have flown all the way from Africa, to make their home here.
That they destroyed part of the ceiling to build their mess, and are leaving a pile poo on the floor is irrelevant, we are so fortunate to see these incredible creatures.
I am delighted that we seem to have a couple of magpies adopting our gardens, and a swarm of sparrows and starlings, along with the usual pigeons. I must admit I would like the wagtails to come back, but you can’;t have everything. We are fortunate to have what we get.
Just spending a few minutes appreciating these wonderful animals is just so relaxing. It fills me with delight.
