I hope you are all fit and well, smiling and enjoying the sunshiny days. The birds certainly are, as they arrive, one by one, to, once more, spend the summer with us and build their nests and raise their young, for us all to enjoy. Last week the Bluebirds put in an appearance and today it was the turn of the Tree Swallows, with their iridescent blue wings and tail feathers, contrasting with their beautifully white chests, at the front. What a lovely sight as two of them chased each other around our nesting boxes, as well as inspecting them closely. They did this to the accompaniment of other birds singing in the adjacent trees and bushes, as they too enjoyed the sun’s warmth.
Stay safe and well,
Cheers, John Baldwin
