This morning dawned quite foggy in north Northumberland, but this was soon dispersed by the sun.
On my way to work my first Swallow of the year was on wires near the Coach Inn, Lesbury. I wonder if it was the grocer's?
This evening we have just taken Bunty on her walk along the old airfield at Boulmer. Three Roe Deer strolled off into a golden haze over the fields long before we got anywhere near. They casually hopped over a wire fence, from a standing start, with effortless ease.
On the return walk a flock of 5 Swallows and a Sand Martin came from nowhere and moved steadily south east, plainly having just arrived from warmer climes.
It looks as if spring proper has finally arrived...
Im off work tomorrow so I'll be out to see if any other migrants have arrived.
97. Sand Martin.
