As I’ve been watching the swallows landing on the boat next door today, I’m wondering if it’s a parent and chick rather than a pair, as the one seems to be slightly ‘fluffier’ than the other.
They seem content to have a side each of the aerial rather than nestle close together, and I haven’t seen one feeding the other, so it’s anyone’s guess as to their relationship.
I did manage to get a couple of better pictures today though.

If we’d still been in the cottage, I would never have managed to get this close.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
