Spring indicated

Forgot to say: I saw my first swallow (the bird, Hirundo rustica, not the act of ingestion) of 2006 on Saturday, failing to catch insects above the flooded Halton Weir.  It, not me.  I mean the swallow was failing to catch insects, not me; I wasn't flooded, either.  I've lost control of this paragraph, haven't I?  Better stop....

Look; there was this bird, right? It was a swallow. It was the first I've seen this year. It was at Halton, near Lancaster. One swallow doesn't make a summer, but it's a sign that the summer migrant birds are arriving, and spring is approaching.

Clear?
