So sang Arthur in Camelot but if he was riding around the Blackstairs today he might wonder about the wind, rain cold and darkness of this May day.It can only get better.
On the Barrow track today, despite the weather ,there was mighty activity. Swallows, House Martins and Sand Martins were having a free for all as they darted and swooped for flies. They flew low and close to the water so it was very easy to see their distinctive markings. The red throat of the swallow, white rump of the House Martin and browner colour of the Sand Martin. All I needed to complete the picture was to see some swifts. But no sign yet.
