Sneaky Swallows

A visit to the stables yesterday afternoon to do nest checks and ring a brood provided the perfect opportunity for a bit of impromptu adult catching for our swallow RAS; four old friends and three new recruits were caught.

V844707 (above) and V844721 were both ringed last year at the
 stables as nestlings and now are back to rear nestlings of their own.
Circle of  life people, the circle of life.
Nest checks revealed the whole spectrum of nestlingness from eggs to fully fledged young. At the moment about fifty young grace the various nests. Fingers crossed for plenty more.

If you don't think these are cute you are clearly dead inside.
