VV Young Barn Swallows

in Nest No. 10

Barn swallows build their nests inside stables, barns, warehouses, archways and garages. If you see Swallows breeding inside buildings they are very

probably Barn Swallows. It is important to ensure that the Birds have constant access during the breeding period (e.g. through a window left ajar,

ventilation pipe or open stable door). Barn Swallows will return from their winter quarters to nest at the same site each year, and as a rule they will

raise several broods during the course of the summer.
