Swal­lows do make a summer

Country Life Every Week - - Letters To The Editor -

FEWER and fewer swal­lows came over re­cent sum­mers, but there was hope, for more went back each time. This year, we have none. Oc­to­ge­nar­ian neigh­bours never re­mem­ber such an event. There are no bowl-shaped mud nests, no delightful fast, low and tightly turn­ing aer­o­bat­ics, no high-al­ti­tude hunts. Things are not as they should be. Dr Arthur E. Smith, Lan­cashire
