Brampton arrival

April 14, 2014

The low swooping flight of a small bird alongside the River Mermaid was enough. The first Swallow had arrived on the Long Meadow near Hall Farm. It was Sunday morning just before eight o’clock and the bird which had ridden the light south westerly breeze and Spring weather. It perched on the wire as if catching its breath. Possibly it’s winter home had been the South African Veldt – so it deserved a rest. If one Swallow does not mean Summer, it does emphasise the approach of mid Spring and the increasing supply of the insect food source. I now look for more.
