Swallows

Looking back precisely 15 years ago today, I see we had young swallows in our barn. The barn is a modern building. I made a hole in the wall, high up on a gable end so that swallows could enter and leave, even if the door was fully shut.

A swallow’s nest was a regular occurrence and a delight to see.

There are three of the little beauties (or should that really be uglies) hoping to see mum or dad return soon with food. It was June 27th 2001.

A few days later (July 2nd) four youngsters were visible and looking much more like the handsome adults.

They will be airborne before long.

We still see swallows but they seem to have abandoned our barn as a nesting place.
