Swallows in my Shed.


I'm very happy that five swallows have fledged in my shed yesterday.. This is the first year that they have used this shed to breed. I have had to block the door open so that they can get in all the time. Only drawback is the mess. Below is one of them. Between my house and the next door neighbours farm there seem to be at least thirty swallows flying around. They have at least ten seperate pairs breeding in their sheds. Seems to be up on last year.

Hi from Tasmania, we have had swallows nesting in and around the carport for the last 18 years, but this year they decided to move into the back shed...perhaps because of the new noisy kelpie puppy!
