Not yet.

I was on Exmoor all last week and we didn't see any Martins or Swallows, so I'll keep my eyes open.

Already seen a few, and we are currently up in the Highlands. Our Ospreys are here too.

One swallow doesn't make a summer, but it's a very promising start to a relationship! :D

You're a lucky man to have Ospreys as summer guests. The swallows are not yet round here. Maybe they're keeping west: it's been a tad chilly in the east.

We were in Florida last year, we were looking around a national park, and went NUTS when we saw an Osprey. The Yank we were with then told us that they're common as muck there. Kinda weird to think they're so rare in the UK.

On a slightly different note, I heard my first Cuckoo yesterday. :D

Yeah, last time I was in Florida they were serving them for lunch, with dolphin on the side.

First Swallow, just one on it's own high above Derwentwater on Friday. Swallows and Snowdrops at the same time!
