Nothing much has changed over the last few days. There has also been little sign of any new swifts prospecting, in fact it's been extremely quiet, with just our own swifts coming in to feed the youngsters briefly and then zooming off again, in fact we hardly see them too. Here are the youngsters in box 1, they don't seem to have put on much growth, although they are starting to lose their downy feathers now:

And here are box 3 with one of the adults, they look almost fully grown now although they're only a week older than box 1, but they still have both parents coming in to feed them:

If we don't get any prospectors in the next few days/weeks I should think there's little hope for next year now that we are down to only one-and-a-half pairs.
