Travel thoughts

I enjoy meeting and visiting friends as I work around the world and that involves a lot of travelling. But this little swallow – less than an ounce in weight – made the 6000 mile flight from southern Africa to nest and start a family in Dublin.  In late autumn they will all set off on the return journey to the other side of the world!  Isn’t nature wonderful!

A great live stream from the nest in our President’s residence – Áras an Uachtaráin can be seen at Nestcam2011.  Apart from being a marvellous view of the little swallow minding the four precious eggs, it also includes lots of information for children and teachers – and the eggs are due to hatch  in the next few days !
