Mission accomplished

For about 12 days I hear no longer the sound of young birds from behind the rooftiles. It seem they have left the nest on scheme after42 days. Last night one of the parents slept in the nest. Maybe that is the one that arrived late this season. It seems they take a periode of rest after raising theire young, before they leave.

Lots of swifts are flying abouve my neighbourhood. Last evening about 25. The nest at the other side of the house is still occupied. So here the common swift season is not over yet.
