It is just possible that Spring has come to my part of the world at last. Today I glanced out of an upstairs window and sitting on a telephone wire was the first swallow I have seen this year.
I made a note of my first sighting in 2011, 22nd April, so almost back on schedule this year. Last year I only became vaguely aware of the odd one flying around in June so I didn’t note the date.
As for daffodils, they are still a rare sight.
