Hi Guys. This must be the last of the young Swallows in the Nest for 2009. Got this shot of them in the Nest in our Barn, (a bit big for the nest i would think) this evening 14th September 2009 @ 5:30pm.

Lovely pics summer. God they look so stern in some of them. As if to say don't point that camera at me. Will you leave the nests?

Hi Guys. Back again with one more update. Got a few shots of the young ones, just after leaving the nest at around 2:30pm today 16th Sept 2009. And one hour later, they had taken flight from the Barn. Now their were four young ones yesterday, but today, i only see three, do not know where the other one went.

Well that's the end of the Swallows for 2009. Lets hope, we all will be alive and kicking, to see their return in 2010
