Anyone seen them yet?

Swallows, Swifts and House Martins that is. Haven’t seen any yet this year in deepest, darkest rural Warwickshire; not even a trip to the stables at the weekend showed any sign of them. We are of course very central, just wondered if members on the south or east coast may have had more luck. Maybe Oldjim on one of his walks might be a favourite?
Saw the first one last year on 24th April (yes, I really am sad enough to make a note of it) so still a couple of weeks early maybe, but thought the generally warmer weather may have brought them over earlier

Haven't seen any as yet
That said now that the local council Tree butchers / untrained asbo / criminal cases surgeons, have ruined the surrounding trees, I am  Undecided if they will come back this year
