We noticed last night that box 3 has had a bit of a clear out. Oh well, it'll save us having to do it at the end of the season! The dead swift has gone, and also, rather surprisingly, the complete nest. It's just like an empty box now with just the adult and the one remaining youngster in it. Maybe they were feeling the heat and just got rid of all the bedding as well!

This morning the youngster in box 3 was at the entrance looking out, I think it'll be away very shortly.

Meanwhile, in box 1 things are the same, the two adults and the one youngster still present, here they are last night:

They were feeling the heat too, the youngster was seen to be gasping at times.
