Following on from the previous video there was a large gathering of Swallows and House Martins in the yard.  A bit earlier than normal.  I have not seen any Martins around the House or yard and there seem to be far more Swallows than I would normally see so I expect they have come from neighbouring sites

Few years ago we were cutting on the railways (Derbyshire I think), break time and we were near a bridge, we went down by the water and all the time we were there young swallows or swifts were skimming the sufrface of the water, drinking, really low flight and lower part of the beak just touching the water. Fantastic to watch

What is really great for us here is that they are very friendly and in the Spring dive at us and fly very close just to tell us they are pleased to be back and just now as they sit on the roof and the barn they do not move when I go near them.

I wish them safe passage and to avoid Malta where they may be eaten!
