Last night the pair in box 3 roosted again, along with the single parent and two swiftlets in box 2. Today has been a quiet day. One of the pair in box 3 was seen sticking more feathers and bits of hay down in the nest early this morning. The rest of the day they have both been absent. We haven't seen much of parent bird from box 2 either today, presumably they've all been off hunting for food elsewhere, and there have been no screaming parties flying around the house. The swiftlets have not left the nest either although they both look happy and well. The strange beetle infestation seems to have ended as suddenly as it began too. Hopefully all the adult birds will be back to roost this evening.
