I think there are six. I'll have another photo in a few days time

Verge was a great help to me

We had three broods of swallows last year and I became incredibly attached to all the little ones....I couldn't bear to think of them flying all the way to South Africa !
And quite obviously they all can't survive, but it still hurts to think of any of them not making it........
And yes, you are right....just look forward to next year.
