I'm sitting at my computer typing my blog and just watched a swallow swooping past. I am very fond of swallows and wait avidly each year for their appearance and mourn their migration when they leave again in September. They are such tiny birds and yet they have such a phenomenal aerial ability, being able to turn in midflight to swerve and swoop over hedges and around bushes in their search for insects. And they fly so far every year to arrive in this country and then back again to South Africa. I think they are truly amazing birds and I enjoy their presence and aerial skills very much.
