Building, I think

It's difficult to tell from the cameras but I think they are repairing this nest.

At the weekend I'll try to take a closer look when they pop out.

This is the outside of the stables where the swallows nest.
The horses names are Tom and Henry.

We have not named the swallows. It's hard enough trying to identify male from female let alone one from another.

Males have longer tail feathers (sails) but unless they are stationary or next to each other it is not always obvious which is which.

Separate beds

One swallow in each nest last night.

Which one do you think?

House hunting

Home makers

The swallows have been here for about two weeks now. Just one to start and then a second last weekend. I just got the cameras up in time for them to start repairing their nest.

These are the first pictures of the swallows at the nest, taken yesterday.
