Yesterday was spent in Dorset and today we visited a Somerset venue - Barrington Court - beautiful gardens and an interesting house. Another lovely day.
On arriving back, although not so sunny now, I decided to take some pics of where we are staying and managed one of the summer flying residents - the swallows. There seem to be two families; I believe there are about 12 in total - they won't stay still long enough for a more exact count!

The nearest lower window is my bedroom!
The dead branch coming left from the tree is the Swallows
Barrington Court - I like this gate
