Late Breeding Sandmartins

September 6, 2021 at 2:41 pm

When our Sand Martins arrived in late April and early May they were faced with ice-cold north winds and snow. Sadly at my local colony many disappeared and presumably died. The big numbers never returned but those that did survive have now bred into early September. This weeks gallery photos were taken in deep shade a couple of weeks ago and those young will now be heading south for winter.
