Lovely images...
They have nearly all left Cheshire but a guy I work with still has a nest full of juveniles in his garage...
I hope we get an Indian Summer in the UK

Great shots of the swallow Joo! It looks very much like our Barn Swallow in the U.S. I was fortunate to see many still at Clear Lake yesterday on our boat trip, flying over the water, scooping up insects.
