Continuing the Swallow theme, here are a few more of young Swallows– hard to take against a bright sky but lovely to see the acrobatics of the adults feeding them insects on the telegraph wires. These young need to put on weight quickly in readiness for their long migration in a few weeks. If you look up the cuckoo migration site by the British Trust or Ornithology you will see that the Cuckoos which were her for a brief time in summer have already migrated back towards Africa. Adults are only here for 6-8 weeks. Conditions: A cooler day, bright with cloud and sun, and still no rain. Temperature: Max 21- Min 14 C
