 Here’s the lastest video of our young swift in Box 3. And at last we’ve also had a group of up to five swifts prospecting around the house…but none have entered the boxes as yet. Let's hope some like what they see!

Here’s the latest video of our single swift chick. It seems to be coming on well now. Still no takers for any of the other boxes, in fact not even any prospectors around here at all, If none return next year I  onder if this will be our last year?

The egg which was out of the nest has disappeared. But we now have a chick which arrived some time this morning;  here is a video of it with the parent which has just come in. Parent seems more interested in grooming the youngster despite it begging for food, but eventually it does give it something, although not much by the looks of it.

It’s bad news, unfortunately one of the eggs has rolled…or been thrown out, of the nest. 











This happened a few days ago and we’ve been unable to get it back into the nest as one of the adults is there all the time. We know there were two eggs in the nest – could this be a third one? We’ve been unable to see the remaining eggs in the nest as yet due to the incubating parent. So here’s hoping that there are still two eggs which should hopefully be hatching shortly.
