The House Martin nest is a very busy place today!

The parent birds are visiting every five minutes or so which is a sure sign that there are chicks in the nest and that there are plenty of insects available to feed them with. These birds were quite late nesting (I blame it on the wet British Summer!!!) but they’re doing ok and could be around with us until September or even October before heading south for the winter.
