"The Swallows are Back!"
This print is part of the Love Nature More exhibition. To read about the show click this link.
The early morning sun's rays were already warming the stubble of the fallow field and a sudden twittering filled the air. Then, as if from nowhere, two swallows came zooming towards us like tiny jet planes at knee-height, yellow beaks gaping wide. They veered up and away then came racing back to continue their feast on the insects buzzing over the old field.
* Bird lovers note: swallows migrate from South Africa and Namibia, a distance of 6000 miles to feed on aerial insects in the UK. They return to Africa in the autumn.
