  3. Wonderful pictures as always Camilla. It’s so lovely to see the birds so busy building nests. The house martins have arrived back at the farm. Only two so far though. I think there were 37 set off back to Africa in the autumn. It does worry me that every year there are less and less return. A few years ago, there were so many house martins, I couldn’t count them all. Now as I say, just two. Very sad but the way the weather has been the last five years, perhaps they’re stopping off further south.

    • Thanks Adrian! It’s indeed worrysome. One of my birdbooks is ~20 years old and when it comes to distribution and habitat it’s not at all accurate anymore, some species are now very rare and others have become common.
