It's wilder than you might think.

Swallow - keen to do my office work !

 Swallow offering to do some paper work............ I wish !

This swallow was in my office like a flash yesterday, after I popped out for all of two minutes leaving the door slightly open to talk to some visitors. We have a number of  nesting pairs around the reserve and wider estate, hard to imagine these beautiful birds flying from south Africa and skimming over the Sahara desert, at a water hole, hawking insects among camels. Here's hoping for some sunshine. More updates to follow soon. Karl.
