Two for the Twitchers

It is always a sign of summer approaching when we see the first of the swallows arrive. It was really nice to see this pair tonight.  It makes a change to beat my mother to the first sighting, she watches the spring sky like a hawk!

I hate to be mean to my friends who are currently ‘ash bound’ in foreign parts at the moment but seconds after taking the picture of the swallows, I caught sight of the first jet I have seen for 5 days.

Newcastle airport has been open today with flights to and from Scotland and The Isle of Man.

Hopefully this is a sign of things to come.

  1. The birds we have can't be swallows then because their tails aren't long enough. I'll have to get the bird book out, as ours have white underneath but shorter tails.
