To you all , Good to see that people do see the Swallows,
Is it OK if i tell you all ,I have been looking at this Sean , as to see when Swallows ,migrate,
So this is From N,Ireland, Sunday 04 10 2009, time 10 30 AM
MY PLACE OF WORK
SUNDAY NIGHT 4 October 2009 SWALLOWS STILL AT MY PLACE OF WORK. THERE WAS NO WIND ON THE SUNDAY NIGHT ,BUT THERE IS AND WAS A GOOD FULL MOON,
MONDAY NIGHT – NOW TO DAY MONDAY 05 10 2009 ,I HAVE BEEN AT MY PLACE OF WORK ALL DAY, AND NOT A SWALLOW IN SIGHT,
THE SWALLOWS WENT AWAY AT MY HOME PLACE ABOUT 3 WEEKS A GO, IT WOULD TAKE ABOUT 10 MINUTES TO GET FROM MY HOME PLACE TO MY WORK PLACE, AND THAT IS AROUND 10 MILES APART,
SO 10 MILES DOWN THE ROAD NO SWALLOWS, BUT GO 10 MILES UP THE ROAD AND,THERE YOU HAD SOME SWALLOWS, AT THE LATE DATE,ON SUNDAY 04 10 2009,
3 WEEKS BACK FROM 4. 10. 2009 I HAD THE SWALLOWS ,GONE FROM MY HOME PLACE,
Number of Nests at my home around twenty five. Work place around Five, hope this is of some Good News for you all, thank you all for now. Jim
Thanks for this information. Isn’t it strange how ten miles can make such a difference in swallows migrating. There is such a lot we don’t understand about swallows isn’t there?
Has anyone any ideas about why ten miles has made such a difference?
