Barn Swallow; Golondrina Común

Hirundo rustica


The Great Migration departure day.
Pic 1 shows our own Swallows (bred in our 2 nests).
Pics 2 & 3 show a group of perhaps 200 gathered on a wire just to the north of our house.
Pics 4-6 show more to the west of our house. This group had a few Red-rumped Swallows amongst them - they will appear on a separate spotting.
Many other wires in our village had similar groups so there may well have been in excess of 1,000 Barn Swallows. Later in the morning when I got back from my walk they had all left.
