A VILLAGER from Brailsford has reported the early arrival of swallows at her home, nearly a week before they usually return to their spring and summer roots.

The seasonal visitor arrived at the home of Lesley Hempsil, who lives off the A52, on April 11 last year but this year the mild winter is thought to have prompted an earlier return than normal and they re-appeared from their winter roosts on Saturday.

Returning swallows is one of the most celebrated signs of the arrival of spring – have you seen them where you live? Call us on 01335 342847 to let us know.
