Summer Bird.

Posted by
Jypyä Pop (Turku, Finland) on 22 June 2013 in Animal & Insect and Portfolio.

Swallows move to Finland April to June. Sometimes they have a chance to grow two litters before you move in August or September to North Africa to spend the winter. When the spring is seen as the first swallows, it is said to be the sign of summer.

Very nice picture. In France we say that the swallow makes the spring, but this year she has forgotten.
Good weekend.

@gerard1948: Oblivion was sad thing. We like a lot of those birds. Their nests are trying to protect, and it is hoped that they will return to their migratory journey to return to the same landscapes.
