This delightful book written for 3-8 year olds relates the story of the first year in the life of Rusty, a Barn Swallow Hirundo rustica. Rusty is born on a farm in England and after several escapades successfully completes a first migration through Europe and Africa to wintering areas in South Africa. The book, featuring illustrations by Sally Bell, has been published by the British Trust for Ornithology in aid of their 'Swallow Appeal', which aims to fund migration research and help understand changes in Barn Swallow numbers over the past ten years.
