    Not swifts, but swallows. Swifts nest in holes, swallows build the little mud nest you can see

    Thank you, thought it was one or another but birds aren't my thing!! Everyday is a school day, just have to remember what I've learned!

    I miss having stables - used to love seeing the swallows come every year to nest in them.

    I have swifts nesting in my roof space and the outside store room. The problem is that to get to the roof space they have to fly under the eaves but sometimes miss and when the door's open often end up in my kitchen instead!
