The swallows are returning!
Updated: Apr 1, 2019
I just saw my first swallow of the year - resting up on a telegraph wire and probably suffering a bit in the cold of the breeze (it was sunny today, but there is still snow on our local mountains).
That amazing little bird has just made it back from wintering in South Africa, a migration that covers 200 miles per day through all kinds of hazards - and it will begin nest building / repairing almost immediately.
To celebrate our bird heroes, I want to share an artwork by UK artist Lucy Newton, Swallow on Wire, 2013.
Find out more from the link below, her work is gorgeous!
