A few moments ago, I wasn't 'out in the countryside' I was sitting in the kitchen on my laptop, when I was joined by a swallow, it must have come in through the backdoor. It then did a bit of frantic fluttering in the kitchen before I was able to open a window and let it out. Thankfully, the swallow flew off unharmed and non the worse for its experience. Well that's my first  visitor of the day.

What an experience.    
Better a swallow than an albatross or ostrich.  
Did it leave you in a flap?
