Swallows

If you have visited the walled garden in the last few weeks you may have noticed the swallows overhead hunting for insects.

As they do most years a pair are nesting in the stable block, where they make good use of the smoke detector to secure their nest.

There appears to be five chicks in this nest and they well raise a second brood before they all migrate to Africa for the winter.
