All Swift gone from here. Still some Swallows and plenty House Martins at the moment.

I would expect the HMs and Swallows to be around until nearer the end of September as long as the weather is reasonably clement.

Not seen any swallows for a few days now. In fact the last ones I had seen was last Monday.

Hurrah :clap: But remember one Swallow doth not a summer make :shake:
I usually start getting a little excited about now as the arrival of the Swifts is about a month away :tampoline:
