Since the swallows left in October last, the little stable yard outside my studio (the old tack room) has been very quiet. Yes, a dozen or more wrens live in the far wall behind my desk and I hear a lot of pushing and shoving, bickering and squabbling at bedtime, but at last things are livening up properly.
This picture explains much, his animals have been out to grass as he has been off sick, but all is getting back to normal.
An advance party of swallows has settled in and soon the main party will arrive making the Etoile feel safe and navigating Trafalgar Square a doddal. They come in at low level at a hundred miles and hour within inches of each other (and me). If I leave my door open they will come in and look for a suitable spot to set up home! I guess that there may be as many as 30 or 40 birds in flight sometimes.

Jo is into wire in a big way. Here she is looking very seriously at what she is doing!
Her web site is http://www.artituk.com/Art_Sculpture_2002/artists2.php?ID=41
and at http://www.joburchell.com/
She didn't like my photos of her in her studio which is large, bright and full of lots of work, finished and unfinished which are good and really interesting! You only get a small idea from this one!!!
We are shareing and exhibition in London in November which I hope you will all visit.
