Several families of Swallows (Hirundo rustica) chose to perch on the overhead cables in our lane this morning and were a treat to watch. Each family consisted of obviously two broods - an earlier and a later and the youngest were very demanding, keeping the parents busy, and hilarious to watch! They are obviously getting ready for the long migration flight to warmer climes.
