No show

No sign of swifts here yet. Everything seems a little later this spring, but I can't see how a chilly pre-spring here in Wales can have much influence on departure time for birds that are coming all the way from Africa. 
When they do get here 'our' swifts are going to be faced with a bit of a housing issue because their nest site over our bathroom window seems to have been taken by a pair of house sparrows. It will be interesting to see how that one pans out.


  1. I'm yet to see any swifts too, I enjoy watching them whilst I sit in the garden.

  2. They're here. A group of five screaming up and down the street last night. Here comes summer!
