The first bat of the year sighted this evening over the garden at Infield. I hope it is getting some insects in these cool evenings.

Great to hear the bats are out despite the cool nights.

Replied by Cathy C on topic Swallows have arrived in Abernyte!
A swallow was seen over Abernyte Farm on 22nd April and at least two on the following day, 23rd April. Hurray one swallow may not make a summer, or even Spring, but two certainly do. We have also heard from HIllhouse that House Martins were seen on 21st April and Willow Warbler heard earlier on 15th April. There were also Swallows there on 23rd.

Estelle was delighted to report that Swallows have re-appeared at one of their nesting sites at Ballindean today. Great news!

A Cuckoo was heard calling from the direction of the hill behind the village on Thursday 26th May. It was round about 1pm and it was heard twice and then not heard again. It would be nice if it has stayed around a bit longer!
