Gatherings

.

The Swifts have all but gone; just a few straddlers. Each day that passes I’m seeing fewer and fewer hirundines. The Swallows are sitting on the wires strung between the fence posts around the cattle enclosure here on the hill. The House Martins are perched in neat rows on the telephone lines and the Sand Martins are fly catching in tumbling groups over the reservoir. All are surely contemplating the journey south ahead of them; feeling the urge to migrate. Soon they will all be gone … until next year.
