Barn swallows 2

This picture 23rd June (18 days old) still 5 chicks

The female swallow did lay 2 more eggs during July but they were exposed to a day when the temperatures rose to 42ºC in the shade and they didn’t hatch. The swallows are all still around but they don’t come back here to roost in the evenings.

Today 5th August 2009, We took the nest down and reclaimed our pottery lamp!
