                                "Swallows" Coloured pencil on paper. 30cmx21cm(A4)

The next in the series "Irish Birds"

Very soon now the young swallows born in Ireland will begin to flock together before they make their way to Africa, an amazing feat of navigation considering they have never been there before. A month or so later after feeding up after the hectic breeding season, the adults will follow.
