Doesn’t time – sorry birds, fly?

The Swallows are certainly having a busy time at the moment. It doesn’t seem two minutes since I went into the garage and saw five tiny birds pop their heads up to be fed by mum. Their bright yellow beaks were almost all I could see. The other day, I saw them take their first flight and couldn’t resist going into the garage for their latest (and possibly last) photo shoot.

Still no sign of the Mallards that appeared in April – I suspect they are busy raising their family somewhere nearby. I hope they drop in on us sometime, it will be nice to see them again.  Ann
