A flying visit

We had an unexpected guest, on a flying visit, today.  A swallow suddenly appeared in the kitchen, having flown in the open front door.  Obviously confused and distressed, because it couldn't find its way out again, bashing against the windows and floundering around (not helped by the dogs), it ended up on the top shelf of the bookshelf in the study.  Finally I managed to catch it and it was wonderful, and a relief, to watch the bird fly off into the blue again.


  1. Poor thing! So glad you were able to set it free! Obviously looking to build ... in the architecture section! Maybe nest building tips!!!!!!! Xx
