Our Swallow Story begins with Capistrano

At lunch time today I asked if anyone had seen a swallow yet this year? No one had!
The conversation then went on to talking about the song about swallows called "When the Swallows come back to Capistrano".
This video will bring back the memory for you.

We then talked about where we thought Capistrano was and it turned out the we were all wrong and yes they still expect the Swallows to return to Capistrano and they have a Festival on March 19 every year to welcome them.

It is the Cliff Swallow that migrates to Capistrano and here they are raising the next generation.
