Gwennol Bach

Hot on the heels of the last night’s late finish was a wonderfully and potentially needless early morning to visit the best swallow site in town. A quick visit last night before the ‘jars showed up one brood ready for ringing and this morning they became fully paid up members of the swallow project. They could have probably waited until tomorrow but eager is as eager does, and these five birds bring our total to 18 with plenty more on the way!

Yesterday evening was also the first opportunity in several weeks to check on the birds breeding in the stalls. Up in the roof, one nest contained young roughly eight days old, while the other contained at least three young who will be ready to take to the wing proper in a week or so! The first egg date will have to be revised!
