What makes a summer?

According to the old saying - "One Swallow Doesn't Make a Summer".  This little chap zoomed into the loomshed this morning at speed and nearly knocked himself out on the window.  Don't know who was more surprised, me or the swallow.
I do hope there is another one around so we will get summer this year.  This morning was very nice but now it's raining again.

Having never seen a swallow at such close range before I was just amazed at it's beautiful iridescent plumage.  After he had had a bit of a sit down to recover, we said goodbye and he winged it over the hills.  However, later on he was back sitting on the phone wires nearby.  Hope Mrs Swallow isn't going to keep him waiting too long!
