When I am rich I will be able to fly to Africa whenever I please – and I will be very pleased.
I have never set foot on that vast continent. I’ve seen photos, watched documentaries, read traveller’s tales … and I’m impatient to experience some of those things for myself.
Now, Africa has come to me. The swallows are back!
Was the first one I saw an English swallow returning home from a holiday in the sun? Or an African swallow coming here to start 4 months of hard work raising 2, or perhaps 3, new families?
I like to think birds have no boundaries. They belong to the whole World.
I haven’t been able to get any photos of this year’s swallows, but here are some of last year’s visitors.
