The Return of the Barn Swallows 2017
Great turn out of Barn Swallow supporters, the wind was pumping Northeasterly and not that
pleasant outdoors. To compliment the arrival local cuisine was on sale with works of art.
Spectators waited and at 6.25pm a tiny flock of less than 100 Barn Swallows arrived and gave a 20
second show before diving into the reedbed. Very disappointing for the spectators and far from normal.
We saw the first Barn Swallow arrivals only the day before so perhaps with the mixed weather we have been
experiencing the Barn Swallows are late in arrival this season.
Phone lines were down and no internet connection for 8 days, apologies to people whom tried to
contact and have been eagerly awaiting news of this event.
