A follow up from last year when the swallows were nesting 2nd brood in the front extension.View attachment 221203 View attachment 221204 Our second brood in the front extension exited the nest yesterday when I looked in. I think there are five in total but hard to tell as they are flighting in and out.
I was a bit worried they might not do all right as the days are closing in but they seem to be doing fine.
All of the nests up the farm are empty now and the place is a bit empty.
I saw a family group of swallows on a wire this morning on the Lairg to lochinver road by Benmore, there were a few martins flying about also.
I will wait till they head off completely before I get cracking on getting the rest of the job done.
