Spring is here in earnest.

Spring is here in earnest.

Today being Wednesday 24 September 2014, Heritage day, a public holiday in South Africa. The morning started out very dull and gloomy and overcast and windy. I am definitely not going to be grazing today. While enjoying my morning coffee on my porch  I noticed two swallows flying around the complex.
On closer inspection I found them on the ground collecting mud from the parts that is still sodden after the winter rains we have been having even now still.

It seems my two Greater striped swallows from last year have returned to rebuild their nest they vacated earlier this year when the migrated to warmer climes.
