Since last Wednesday, our 'Red Rumped Swallow' has been a frequent visitor to his perch in front of the mirror. Early morning and in the evening until it is too dark to see himself, and once or twice during the day, he tweets away to his reflection.
To our surprise, four mornings ago, he arrived with a friend who perched herself on top of the parrot's head alonside the mirror and sat watching our Red Rump. Goodness only knows what she made of it but...she eventually flew off and left him to it.
Since then, she has been a regular visitor, arriving with him and leaving with him, patiently waiting for him whilst he admires himself ......
Are they nest building we wonder....will her patience be rewarded?
