Swallows are back!

Stratford Road/Mill Lane junction 9 April 2021

Two of the Parsonage Farm swallows returned earlier this week during a spell of cold weather. The sunshine this morning encouraged them to settle long enough for these photos to be taken.

In England we say 'One swallow doesn't make a summer' but in France the expression is "une hirondelle ne fait pas le printemps' - one swallow doesn't make springtime Does it feel like Spring or summer today?
