One doesn't. Does two?
The Aristotelian maxim that one swallow does not make a summer is a famous one, but yesterday's sight of two swallows perched atop a telegraph wire had me leaping with excitement and reaching for the camera-phone. They were quite untroubled by my presence, presuambly exhausted after their epic migration flying 200 miles per day. Others have reported house martins returning locally, but these are a sure sign that we have thrown off winter.
