In late Spring the Swallow arrives back in the UK to nest after completing the long trip from Southern Africa. They fly 200 miles every day and are so admired for their courage and resilience and that's probably why Swallows symbolise good luck.
You know that Spring has properly arrived once you've seen a Swallow....
However they only stay for the Summer and start to make the epic journey back to the Southern Hemisphere in August.
Length of Swallow 2.5 cm, solid sterling silver
