First I've seen this year, outside now.
Oh Crap! Midgies won't be far behind
Housemartins turned up at ours the other day (and I don't mean the 1980s pop group that spawned Beautiful South and Fatboy Slim!)
The midges are here already, no swallows yet, though!
Only 50 days until midsummer!
Saw the first two on the 23rd April....
Oh cr@p indeed
Clouds of insects, cycling through them was a bloomin nightmare last night and tonight...filled your eyes as you cycle along the woods and by the river.
No fun at all...
Is this a good reason to wear my full face motorbike helmet instead of getting a new biking hat?
No..probably not...not if you want to keep your friends
Its a river / woodland thing. Detour next time i want to get to the chippie (6 miles away )
think the polar bears have moved in here
Saw housemartins for the first time this year on Wednesday night. Not seen any swallows yet but if they've reached ardnamurchan they must've reached here.
I saw some swallows sitting on a telephone wire last Sunday....a great sight.
The birds (don't ask me what they are) have arrived out here in the last couple of weeks and the twittering in the mornings is really pleasant!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
