It's all about location

The swallows that have nested at Glentrool visitor centre for the last few years are back and have started on home decorations already! They have been around for a couple of weeks and staff at Glentrool were unsure whether they would take up residency in last years nest as the birds didn't seem that interested in it and they started checking out other possible locations.

However after a few days they made their minds up, they have settled with last years location and have set about tackling repairs and making it cosy for the little ones that wont be far off.

We have a little camera set up on the nest with live footage beamed back into the centre for you to enjoy whilst you stop for lunch or just a wee refreshment break.

Will post some pictures when we have them.

Good luck swallows!
