There has been a distinct autumnal feel these last few mornings,Rowan trees are heavy with fruit
and the leaves are already starting to turn on a Beech tree across from my house.
I can remember as a youngster the Swallows gathering on the telephone wires( not many telephone wires left for them to gather on these days) in September prior to departing for sunnier climes.
This year the Swallows were late on arriving and their numbers were less than usual.
This morning no swallows they have gone, no signs of them gathering,just here as normal one day and gone the next, very early has anyone else noticed are they still with you, have they left, when did they leave?
