Baby Birds

A few weeks back I mentioned how the baby swallows who had hatched in my stable roof had flown the nest. I thought that would be the last batch of babies for this year. I was wrong, another pair of swallows has built a fresh nest and hatched a clutch of eggs. But it is now September and all the other swallows are starting to gather for their migration south. I’m worried these poor babies won’t be out of the nest and strong enough when it’s time for them to leave. The parents are working flat out to feed their babies, but time is running out!

I shot this video with my Iphone, please forgive the way it wobbles, my arms started to ache after a while of holding my phone up in the air!!

Thank you for watching ๐Ÿ˜€

  1. They fly just like my wife drives.

  2. How lucky to have swallows nesting! It’s years since I’ve seen one. Fingers crossed for an Indian summer โ€“ they might hang about long enough for the babies to get into shape for the trip.

    • I’m hoping so they are looking well grown so hopefully they might start flying soon. Unfortunately I think there’s another mum sitting in one of the other nests! I can see her peering over the edge at me ๐Ÿ˜ฆ
