Swallow: Daily Post Prompt 25th March

We shall miss the boat even more this year.
The swallows would be arriving shortly, dip diving across our bow, and taking up residence on neighbouring boats masts and aerials.
It was a sign of Summer, and I could watch them for hours.
They are so damn quick, I was lucky to get a decent picture.

Photos taken May and June 2015

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.

    • Thank you. My camera wasn’t all that good, and the zoom shots always came out fuzzy. But I managed to get a few of them. There are so pretty close up. beautiful colours.

        We have a beautiful array in the garden your usual tits Robin and wrens. We are ingluding a pair of Mallards and a wandering Phesant that belive they have more rite than we to the space. We hope that to thank us for squatters rites the Mallards will bring their ducklings as they are obviously nesting nearby. But every photo i take is a wing a beak or a retreating backend. Not got the right eye or camera I think.

      • How lovely! We found on the marina that the ducks got used to us and we were able to see their babies for short periods. The swans actually brought their five cygnets alongside our boat, we didn’t encourage any of the waterfowl by feeding them, they just came! We talked to them all the time (gave some names such as Lonely Duck, Rooster Duck, Laughing Duck), so I guess our voices didn’t bother them too much. Maggie never bothered them, and she’s the same here.
        Once the ducks get used to you, they may well come closer. Good luck!
