The young swiftlets trying to keep cool, the right hand bird is resting it's head on the floor of the box!
There was a bit of a 'raiding' party today, four swifts did several screaming flypasts, and one of them entered box 2 a couple of times but was put off by the youngsters who were alone at the time. It's partner tried to find a back way into the box and also nearly entered the open bedroom window! Another swift entered box 1 briefly this morning.
The raiding party
As always, we look forward to seeing who turns up to roost tonight.
