Home Tweet Home - Update

Our Swallows are doing brilliantly, I am pleased to report. There are four, and I was right, one is camera shy! Mum and Dad are working their socks off flying in with tasty morsels for them all to gobble up.

I should think the food will be plentyful as its been very damp and mild recently so lots of bugs flying about ready to be caught by a sharp flying Swallow!

The chicks seem to have put on some good weight and are sitting proudly in their nest. Their little tufts of head fluff sticking up make all of our visitors smile as they pass by to go in to the cafe for a cup of tea.

We've been greatly enjoying being a distant part of this families life and fingers crossed all continues to go well. Wonder when they will think about flying lessons? They have still some growing to do yet but I hope we are around in the centre when they do take their first flight.

That's all for now.
