Its always exciting to see your first Swallow of summer and today was no exception. As I was wandering along the lane near the Crab and Lobster I was suddenly aware of a summer twittering sound and looking up at a telephone wire...there it was! Marvellous! I had already seen a Willow Warbler yesterday afternoon and had seen another three this morning (all singing there hearts out) but this Swallow...well, it really was the 'icing on the cake'.
It is a wonderful morning, warm sunshine from an unbroken blue sky, quite still and the sound of the skylarks singing against a quiet lapping of the ripples of the rising tide is simply magical. What am I doing writing a blog...I must get out...NOW!
