Vis Mig

That's Visible Migration for the unfamiliar. As a still fairly recent coastal resident (and loving it) I feel I still need to appreciate certain phenomena. The passage of Swallows through the village can be quite spectacular. Impressive numbers also dwell overnight and early morning outside my cottage.
Yesterday I counted 325 on the wires! I'd been promising myself Id take some pics for the Blog. Well. I finally achieved it.
A small sample from the front door
A bit closer...
Yes, a very common bird but an iconic one. Overlooked/ignored?
I had an idea...I get them now and again. I went upstairs and waited in the front bedroom.
A couple of close ones...
Justice done.
