Lucky dip

Swimming at the high school pool this evening – warm water and blue skies were accompanied by a family of pied wagtails and a battery of house martins swooping and swishing up above. The young wagtails were precariously balanced atop a wooden fence and looked like little tight rope walkers as their tails jerked in the way a circus performer would use a pole. A few swifts about too – shooting and diving like supersonic jets, whilst the house martins resembled acrobatic little spitfires.
