Haha! Hasn't it been over three seasons that they have perched here?
They have been very regular for the last five years or so, but were late this year which gives rise to eco-angst. But they are definitely back, hooray.
A friend heard on the television this morning that house martins are short of wet mud with which to build their nests becasue of the very dry conditions this year. Viewers were advised to create muddy puddles in their gardens.Spike thinks it's worth a try. He's done the odd bit of muddy paddling in his time.
I think they can make do with the pond!
