    Hi Wistman, saw one swallow here 2 days ago on the wires, normally have 3 pairs nesting here , last year only one pair, I think there was some awful weather Greece area which literally knocked the swallows out of the sky this spring, and for 2019 there was a south African drought which didnt help. So unfortunately only seeing then in one or twos in the hamlets/farms to the north of Peter Tavy. Swallows and house martins usually feed over-head here – valley bottom, but none to see.
    The goldfinch at first listen sounds a bit like the swallows, then I tune in and realise they are not back!
