House Martins

I'm lucky enough to live in a house that's ideal for House Martin (Delichon urbicum) nests, and the House Martins are considerate enough to have built their nests right beside my bedroom window. One of my greatest pleasures in life is laying in bed with my morning cup of coffee and watching the House Martins feeding their chicks, it's blissful. My girlfriend was lucky enough to get these pictures a little while back. Enjoy.

Bye for now,

    1. Thanks Paul, I'm glad you enjoyed the post.

      The pictures really are something special aren't they, the chicks appear to be more interested in us than afraid of us, it amazes us that they let us get so close.

      All the best,
