Just a very short blog today as I have been out all day and have people staying. But I came on just to say that our first swallow has arrived on site! This is the earliest that the farmer can ever remember them coming - April 9th was the earliest before. This morning , when he went out into the yard, a swallow was perched on the wire - where they always sit. It is only one but no doubt others will join it shortly. The miracle is that they arrive here - to the place where they were born - on time, every year - all the way from Africa. What a joy it is to see them and to know that more will follow.
