We took one look at this little swallow and knew it was something special! Turned out it was not unique but definitely not common in Gauteng. It was the "Lesser Striped Swallow" and it seemed to be looking for a place to nest...
The two of them almost spent the whole weekend hanging around our front door entrance! It seems as if we are about to have a nesting pair taking up residence in our spot!
