Heading North

By Philip_H
I thought I would leave you with these young swallows preparing to fly south as we prepare to head north for a week.

Thanks for all the C&Cs on 'Yorick' - will catch up with everyone on our return.

Best wishes,
Philip & Barbara

They are starting to gather around here as are the House Martins. Wonderful to see but also a little depressing knowing they are heading off and leaving us to winter! I do like the lovely image of them here and wish them a totally safe journey. All the best for your holiday. Hope the weather proves kind to you.
