Manure Matters. May 2011.

The Yellow Wagtails continue to delight, they are still quite active and maybe two female birds look like they have not got nests as they continue to be followed everywhere. The Yellow headed' bird was happy to perch up just three feet from me, content with my company.
There are good numbers of Swallows around and at least three House Martins mixed in. The Swallows have been resting up sleeping on the mud peaks, the wind is definitely hampering their usual willingness to land. What a contrast from my village where there are only a few Swifts so far this year and no sign of House Martins at all !, even Swallows are lower in number.
