At last! after watching several thousand swallows come in off the sea at Strumble, at last we have a pair prospecting our barns again! In the twenty one years we have been here they have graced us with their tuneful twitterings. Each year they produce two broods, occasionally only one, but i guess on average over the last twenty years that's about 100 fledglings.  Every year i pray they will return but never more than this year, Hurrah.
