The hirondelle chicks are now learning to fly and the grove of platanes in our town center are a great place to practice swooping for insects then racing up and down and around the streets and buildings of the village.
They have to learn fast. In a few weeks they will be leaving for their winter home across the Mediterranean in North Africa. Even with seasoned old-timers who have made this journey many times, the young fliers will be put to the test. We wish them well.
