|Eleanor banding the smallest of the chicks.|
|In order to get them back they needed a little poke in the backside to get them to shuffle back to the nest chamber.|
On Sunday we also put a 4m net up across the entrance to a toilet block where Welcome Swallow nest each year. Managed to recapture the female which was originally banded in Nov 2017 at the same site. It was also caught in 2018 so great to know that it is site faithful and is still surviving. It is also now our oldest recap of any species at the Quarry being banded only a week or so after we started banding there.
