"It's not the despair, Laura... I can take the despair. It's the hope I can't stand."

Two years ago (almost to the day) I blogged about the best birds of all (of course) finally returning to a NEW "Swift Half"after seven years of trying to attract them into the attic.

Then last year, in a true annus horribilis for swifts, I had to report that we basically had a nil year here.

But today.… HOOOOOOBOYY today - they're BACK! (Photo below taken just before 7am this morning).

For only the second time ever (here) and not since the heatwave summer of 2018, the best birds of all have been lured back into our attic. 

I assume the squadron of three screaming swifts that have been lapping our house in wide loops for a week or three now are young, non-breeding prospectors - and if that is the case... then once again - I can only dream about one or two of them returning next year to FINALLY breed.

I (I trust) will be ready - and so will my cameras!

Cross your fingers and toes please!

TBR.
