The Return of the Barn Swallows 2012

The Return of the Barn Swallows 2012

After a very stressful build up and wondering if we should continue with the planned event after the previous weeks of heavy rainfail, all went ahead as planned and we couldn't have had or wished for a more perfect day.
The weather was glorious and the colourful sunset all added to what was one of the most amazing Return of the Swallows sightings we have ever experienced.
People flocked to the site armed with picnics, chairs and binoculars from late afternoon and sat in wait for the Barn Swallow arrival and they weren't disapointed.
The Barn Swallows arrived in full mass thrilling the onlookers at sunset, they performed their evening display and all too soon they descended into the Lake Victoria reedbed roost and the skies were empty.
!0 minutes later as it grew even darker a few fireflies sparkled across the viewing site, a perfect end to a perfect day.
