THE swallows arrived early this year. They swooped and dipped into our garden in a frenzy of enthusiasm bringing much needed joy to our lockdown and reminding us that when so much of life has paused, nature is celebrating.

Their arrival in the middle of last month coincides with one of the busiest periods of the year for wildlife. Nests are being built, chicks and being hatched, fox cubs are being born. And even though we can’t go very far at the minute, the swallows are also a reminder that we don’t have to leave our gardens to see nature up close and personal.
