Gales, Swallows and Shelduck

Newburgh Lake at lunchtime- Shelduck were bouncing on the waves and above them at least six Swallows. I have never seen this number of Swallows in March. They were making light of the 60mph gusts as they swooped low over the water to feed. At one time four passed low by some Shelduck. The gales have flattened many daffodils which were just coming up to their best show and Cherry Plum blossom is drifting off the trees like snow.

  1. Dear Mr Pomroy,

    May we in the first instance congratulate you on an attractive and informative website. Our motivation for contacting you this morning is to highlight a simple case of copyright law which pertains to your web content. As you may be aware, our client Wildlife International Trademarks recently succeeded in patenting the name and likeness of the European Barn Swallow (hirundo rustica). This patent has worldwide application and is effective immediately. Therefore we must ask you to impose the legend ‘© Wildlife International Trademarks’ on each swallow depicted in your artwork. For reasons of space you may instead simply put ‘WIT’.

    Your humble servants,
    McCulloch & Pritty
