User's notes

in between the rain the Welcome Swallows and this Willie Wagtail came out prancing around in search of bugs. Doing dances in the wet grass. Then a few minutes later just before the came again the Welcome Swallows and Willie Wagtail disappeared. They all knew it was time to take shelter, so we did as well. Was amazed to see how many bugs there were in the air as well in the short time of no rain.
