It turns out that the swallow in the last blog post was actually sitting on eggs. They had all hatched by the friday. A week later I went to photograph them. The top image is a quick edit of one of the shots. Today, ten days later than the last time I photographed them, they're almost ready to fledge. I suspect by Monday they'll have left the nest, or at least one of them will have.
I was also treated to two reed warbler chicks being fed by the adult, but I only managed to photograph one of them being fed.
I should really edit these properly, however for now, these edits will have to do.
