Summer is a-coming

April 20, 2013

Left the office early yesterday and on my way home, just outside Dungiven, there it was, sitting on a wire: 2013’s first swallow! Within an hour I was out walking in my local woods and had hardly entered the trees before I heard a willow warbler! Just a gap of a week between him and the chiffchaff, the classic interval.

Winter is over at last.

  1. Hooray! Spring now, and summer a-coming! I like that. I can’t necessarily identify the birds, but I can tell you that they are all busy right now! Nesting and singing up a storm! I have really enjoyed the happy sounds. 🙂

    • All over the northern hemisphere! It’s good when everything sometimes feels like detrimental change is inevitable, that the migrants, some of them at least, are still coping!
