Our House Martins are back!


They actually returned, belatedly, from their African migration a few weeks ago, but only now do they appear to have settled back into their nest after having to rebuild half of it out of mud. It’s nestled underneath the eaves of our house, right outside our bedroom window. There’s been frenzied activity over the past week, as the adult pair tirelessly fly back and forth across our street in search of airborne insects.
