Swallows passing through?
Have we acquired lodgers? These two swallows spent the afternoon flying in and out of the patio, twittering loudly and checking out the facilities. They seem to like the perch above the home-made bamboo wind chime and by dusk had settled in for the night.
The cats were mesmerised, both sitting side by side, looking up, not moving. When I grabbed my camera, they abandoned their vigil.
Now the thing is - are we to have lodgers for the summer, and babies, or are they just passing through, enjoying a rest before continuing their journey. Watch this space, as they say.
