The swifts are back in. I came home this evening and heard a scream, I looked up and there were seven over the high street. Back for the summer. Their arrival is always pretty much all or nothing. No steady trickle of the first pioneers and then gradual accumulation like the swallows. They just appear. Usually in the evening, usually all together, and acting as if they have never been away. I would like to think that our swifts were in Spain or the south of France yesterday, and Morocco the day before. Four months of Africa back with us again.

The swifts are back
