Cowart's Common Room
Swallows are back!

Oo, oo, I'm so excited.
I've just seen the first two swallows swooping above the field in front of our barn...

They're exactly a week earlier than last year.
The warmer weather can't be far away folks.

Hi Bodran

Fingers crossed!-I'm around most of tomorrow so it would be ideal. Just drop me a note or text and hopefully I'll see you then.

Milkmaid's Avatar Thats great, no sign here yet, My friend saw them on their way up when she was driving through France. I have been tracking an Osprey on the Radio 4 website

LittleBrownDog's Avatar Saw one today, too, CCA, and thought just the same thing.

KittyB's Avatar I think I saw one last night when we were on our way out in the car, but have been looking all day and haven't seen another. Here's hoping! I have however seen the lillies of the valley peeking through that I thought had disappeared, so am over-excited in general about that. And the first two eggs from the hens. And a party tonight - am pink with glee!
