Can Mayfly be far behind?

 

Sir, – The swallows in Dunslaughlin, Co Meath (David Murnane, April 15th) have been joined by those in Westport (Graeme Guthrie, April 18th) and the latter’s inquiry as to the whereabouts of the cuckoo answered in the following submission by Roger Johnston in Cliften, Co Galway (April 18th).

All very well, but when will the really big news be announced – the arrival of the Mayfly? – Yours, etc,

DAVID FitzGERALD,
