The Journey South by thepapercrane

Kids Clothes

Available to buy on…

As a boy at I would watch the swallows gather in large numbers on the wires, young and old, preparing for their long journey ahead. Over the English channel, down through western France, across the Pyrenees, down eastern Spain into Morocco, and across the Sahara. Some following the west coast of Africa avoiding the Sahara, and others traveling further east and down the Nile Valley.

Their departure would sadly symbolise the end of summer and I would look forward to their return each spring.

Nature inspired illustrator based in SW UK.
