Earlier this week the swallows arrived en masse. In fact, there were so many it was quite a sight! The good spring weather must have made for good going with more surviving the long journey from Africa. We spent the next few days keeping the garage and shed doors firmly closed - we prefer to see them nesting outside the building rather than inside.
For the last 3 years two ducks have visited us for a few weeks each spring. They spend time in the garden and on the pond and come to be fed 2 or 3 times a day. Then they disappear until the following year. They have just reappeared for the second time this year. Of course, they now have names - Donald & Daisy!!
Our Blog is still under construction and as soon as things progress, I'll include some photos. The good weather is holding, although rain is needed (night time would be best) and the garden is flourishing - again some photos to follow.
