I don’t think it will be long before this young House martin fledges and heads out into the wide blue yonder.
These nests are in a local street that I’ve blogged about previously, which I checked up on during a wander around the town today.
Several of the nests were still occupied with, what I assume to be, second broods of chicks. There are actually two in this nest – you can just see the beak of the second on the left.
When there are two nests sharing a ledge, there does seem to be the occasional spat with the neighbours, though I think junior, on the right, is more interested in whether adult, on the left, is bringing food.
Finally, one of its parents has arrived bearing snacks.
