Our First Swallows

Recommended Posts

Earliest I ever saw one was March 15th 1981 skimming the outside swimming pool in Chelmsford- watched it for around 10-15 minutes. Was another 3-4 weeks before we saw another

Bit early, maybe off the back of the recent unseasonably warm spell.

Me neither - some things just stick though. Day after the fishing season ended so as that wasn’t available we went swimming instead - year before I left school so remember it like it was yesterday.

but as I get older my short term memory is not what it was ☹️

I remember my first shag from years ago, but it could have been a guillemot!
