Subject: [obol] swallows?
Has anyone else noticed a recent reduction in swallows? A few weeks ago there were about six or eight pairs apparently preparing to nest here at Thornton Creek, (Lincoln), but now there are only a couple pair each of Barn Swallows and Violet-greens. It could be that the females are sitting on eggs, but it looks more like some birds simply left the area. It stayed cold and wet here right up to the end of last week, and I wonder if some of the birds just departed to more suitable places.
