... where is she?
Little swallows waiting for their parents in Nadaud's garden, taken during lunch break.
Don't worry, she was back soon after, dad was feeding the siblings. More to come I feel (if they let me Tongue)

Lynne has summed this shot up to a "T"Wink

I wonder why some come all the way to our shores and others remain on the mainland?

You've got us all mousing over the two images so we can't chose a favourite now!
Swallows no less - I usually see these like specks way too far away to ever capture,
so well done you!
