Swallows
« on: June 30, 2018, 07:09:47 pm »
The quicker swallows fledged their brood of five a few days ago but this pair are a little further behind and furiously bringing in food to try and catch up. Very hard to tell how many are in the nest but it looks like at least 7. That's a lot of mouths to feed!

Photos taken carefully with a zoom and from a bag hide to avoid disturbing the food relay.

Lovely pictures. I could see the first one on the Countryfile calendar
Life is like a bowl of cherries, mostly yummy but some dodgy bits
