    Swallows have arrived

    Driving home last night and saw a solitary swallow at 17:30 Winterbourne, South Glos, several days earlier than last year.

    Yep, saw my first at Kennick reservoir in Devon yesterday, only 4 but that will quickly increase.

    I had a single solitary one about 10 days ago now, saw it for a couple of days, not seen any since mind, also seen other migrants like yellow wagtail already. We've got our stone curlews back now, that's always the best sign spring has sprung round these parts, blackcap singing this morning and the trees are alive with chiffchaffs too.
    best time of year! (apart from the red rut).
    Opinions are like arseholes....... we all have them, and most of them stink

    I saw the swallows lining up on electric wires in South Africa to fly north in mid March !
    How long do they take to cover the 6,000 miles ?
