Marymead House Martins

The local House Martins appear to have left over the weekend. We had two nest sites at Marymead, one raised a brood but unfortunately, the two young died, the second proved much more successful with having two broods and at least 2 young fledged from each brood.

They will now have a journey of a few thousand miles to sub Saharan Africa to winter, returning next April.
