Life in Tasmania's Huon Valley, by a blow-in from the mainland
Sunday, December 16, 2012
"Our" welcome swallows eventually came back! After last year's unsuccessful breeding season, I wondered if we'd see them again. I love having them around. They are such pretty little birds, always swooping and chirping happily. They built a nest under the balcony, flying in day after day with mud and grass, and are now flying back and forth with food for the hatchlings. The photo below is a bit blurred, but you can clearly see the three mouths gaping.
Escaped Sydney in 2010 for a piece of paradise in Tasmania's Huon Valley. I'm a keen walker, remote worker, incompetent gardener, Bernese Mountain Dog owner, fan of almost anything German (food, language, cars, beer), amateur linguist, chook fancier, childfree.
