Mark Goodwin on Swallows

There's a terrific post here from Leicestershire poet Mark Goodwin, about his children hand-rearing a Swallow. It's interesting from an ornithological point of view, but it's also full of lovely writing. That phrase "a bringing in of the far" is great.

Dear Matt

Greetings from Marles-en-Brie! We are staying in a friend's house for a month. The bird life in the back garden here is very impressive, ranging from turtle doves to house martins to gold finches. It is almost as impressive as our overgrown garden near Swansea!

Best wishes from Simon R Gladdish
