It’s been very quiet here on my little blog for the last couple of weeks, sorry. I have had a bit of a head cold which left me feeling a little groggy, but I’m finally feeling better!
In news from home, all the swallow babies seem to have left their nests now. It has been a very successful year for the swallow families who live in our stable roof each summer. Most years we have to rescue babies who fall out and clamber up step ladders to return them to their homes (this doesn’t turn their parents against them as people seem to think. They normally survive as long as the fall hasn’t injured them.), but not this year, we haven’t noticed any losses! So here’s a picture of one clutch of babies about to fly!
