The most salubrious nesting site for House Martins in Rads : the toilet block by Claerwen dam! Mind it was bettered a few years back when a Swallow went through the window into the gents toilet and reared a brood on the cistern! It does provide good viewing and I was greatly amused as a stubborn youngster refused to come out, so this parent actually went in and bundled it out.It flew perfectly well.

    Great shots Kev, not sure if everyone will understand why you are wandering about with a camera near the toilet block though!
