Swallows Arrive 4th April 2016 !
So we were driving through Nantithet when I spied a Swallow this morning sitting on a telegraph wire ! The first sighted Swallow of the year always delights me ...but I didn't have my camera with me..drat ! ..and then as we drove on towards Mullion, we see lots of Sand Martins also returning to their usual nesting holes in the banks above Poldhu Cove .
With blue sky and the temperatures rising in the afternoon , we decided to take the camera and get some photos of those Sand Martins ....but alas , I only snapped one high up in the sky , see top picture . Where did they all go ? These are their nesting holes . I will be making sure to carry my camera at all times from now on ....may be they'll be back tomorrow .
I had my first chocolate ice cream of the year from the Poldhu Cafe , and watched the people on the beach and the two surfers who were surfing too close to the rocks for my liking . The beach looked lovely and clean today and that blue sky and sunshine made us all feel good .
Once the Swallows arrive I feel like there's no going back , Summer is well on the way !
Next I,ll be listening out for the Cuckoo !
