at last! by autumn I shall be longing for peace and quiet, but right now I long for their incessant chirping right outside the window  :excited:

Don't wrestle with pigs, they will love it and you will just get all muddy.

Our housemartins turned up a couple or three weeks ago.. they've already built a new nest (last years fell down) but notably it's a bit smaller than typical (more conical at the bottom). V reckons they're downsizing in keeping with modern practice...


How do you keep Housemartins off?
