Probably the last few Swallows

I got permission this week to ring Swallows on another local farm. Although late in the season I hoped there might be a 2nd brood or two. I was right. One well nourished 2nd brood and another nest with eggs. The farm also has a good sized colony of House Martins & the farmer us keen for me to ring these as well!

I didn't need a ladder for these but stood on the back of an old sofa used by the farm dog! As soon as they heard me they started begging for food!
