Crail seemed full of swallows today. I watched the house martins hawking over the long grass of Roome Bay, enjoying the lack of cutting. All that sunlight energy that was going to waste in council compost heaps is now powering insects. There will be more house martins next year as they turn them into chicks. It’s a great exchange, more of everything, except neatness and carbon dioxide.

Some of the many young swallows fledging in Crail this week and a proud parent – the lack of grass cutting has boosted the numbers of insects in town and this has bound to have made a positive difference
