The three young swifts are halfway their time on the nest. In about 22 days they will leave. There is a little problem with the camera at the moment. So I hope we will be able to see the next 22 days. If it turns black, technique fails us...

This morning at 9:00 am. Jorge from Madrid saw two chicks and one egg, but around 10:30 Erna and Willy reported seperately on the dutch site, that they saw 3 chicks. It seems that the last egg has come out also after 20 days. Right on scedual. Now I only have to spot them myself.
Thanks for reporting!

The common swift may be famous because they fly almost their entire life, these two here are taking it easy at this time. They are often in bed till 10.00 in the morning. I don't blame them. As soon as they have little chicks there will be enough flying to do to catch some meals.

The first Dutch sightings of the common swift for this year are reported on april 3 and 4 at Leidschendam and Amsterdam. Early but not impossible since the weather is very fine the last few days. So lets crank up the site for another year of The Swift webcam.(Our fifth year in a row) Join us!
