Welcome, swallows!

In a strange deviation from the usual Australian bird-naming practice of stating the obvious, this little pair are called Welcome Swallows.

They were blown in by the recent storm and sheltered in our horse shed for a few days. They politely left their calling cards. All over the spare horse rugs. They are welcome here, but because of that tendency I daresay they're not welcome everywhere.
