i am currently working at Stoughton [nr Wedmore,] where the house owners are used to up to 5 live nests per year of Swallows and have for over 10 years , but as of yet this year they have none!! probably too late for any now,not sure but they are rather dissapointed
Plenty of swallows over the fields just to the west of Creech St. Michael this evening when I took a stroll along the towpath and I even had a fox wandering along the path about a hundred yards in front of me !
Solved your problem - just got back from the Island of Kefalonia off the west coast of Greece. That's where they all are. Wherever you looked there was a swallow. Thousands of them. Like ants!!!!!
4 recently fledged Swallows being fed in a field near the Avalon Marshes Centre this morning.
Sadly, very few here at Norton Sub Hamdon. Real lack of Swifts also and really miss their screams. Very sad.
