Not yet at Strumble maybe never but I hope they make it!

Our last full day in Lanzarote, its been hot and sunny but with a strong wind from the north east. I have to say i have not been much of a birder but this evening I had pure gold in the form of a flock of hirundines flying high, north east into the wind which had died down to a breeze. I presume they were migrating and maybe got a bit off course. I was thrilled to see this migration in action, as a boy the thought that the little birds that built their cupped nest under our eaves would fly all the way to South Africa. Now I have seen them half way and maybe just maybe I will see the same ones fly by Strumble in a couple of months! I hope they make it!
