I am mystified by our swallows. Two nests, two broods. Both broods seem to have fledged.

And yet, I have not seen anything of the young ones since. Usually, they’d be very obviously in and out of the nest site, often sitting in a row on a roof beam waiting for the parents to feed them.

The adults are still very much in evidence, and presumably will be gearing up for second broods.

I’ve no idea what has happened.
