Another launch photo

The launch crane is huge. In front of the boat is the lad with the remote control. He manoeuvres the yachts as if they are toys.

As I was checking my Internet, I sensed some chirping and looked up to find a swallow (I think) sky-diving me. He and his mate are building a nest. I can’t hear, or see, any nestlings but the parents chirp into the nest. (I wish I knew more about bird behaviour.) When one arrives, the other flies off aiming for my head – very aggressive little creatures. If I’m very still they disregard me.
It’s taken me two days to get this photo. It’s great to see them in mid-air, changing places, but I didnt manage to click that. So, the boatyard is full of men and women preparing their sail-homes, and in this corner, about six feet away from my desk, these two are busy with theirs. Good luck to them.
