Happy International Wom*n’s Day!
Here’s some footage I took yesterday morning, about 11am local time.
I am so excited that there are 2 house/barn swallow Hirundo rustica nests under the eaves that they’re coming to fix up and use again! I know they’re the most common swallows in the world – but having the opportunity to watch any birds nest and care for their young close-up is fascinating, they don’t live anywhere that I normally do, and they have such a beautiful voice and range of calls. I’m definitely going to transcribe their voices for instruments.
Some people have been asking what it looks like where we’re living. So I’ve done a little 360° view around our courtyard as well.
Apologies for my wobbly handheld skills! My recorder has better sound than visual quality, and I am no cinematographer.
