    Yes I know but BobP was talking about swallows without actually knowing anything about them...

    I saw my first swallow this year on the 12th of April about four hundred yards off Strathy Point, so it had either overshot or was heading for Orkney (and even then was a bit off course!).

    Its not an exact science for the birds,Many overeshoot and don't make it,same for our winter migrants.Sad to say many perish in the flare off's from north sea oilriggs.
