A glorious Spring morning again, (various pics below) by this time of year I can start to feel a little weary as I plod up the brae in the early hours to start feeding the horses, the enthusiastic welcome I receive from the horses invariably cheers me up and today I was also greeted by the chirping of my friends returning from Africa - the swallows and house martins - early this year like the grass, the first batch tend to stay for a day or two before heading further North, they are followed by the summer residents later in the month. They make an awful mess but I am intrigued and can't really bear to banish them.
