My 15 minutes of fame!

Post by sprintster » Fri Jun 23, 2017 4:36 pm

I was feeling quite pleased with my good dead at work yesterday so I posted it on a Facebook photography page called Scotland From The Roadside.Almost 400 likes later and a news agency has just been in touch wanting my story! :laugh:
So,a couple of weeks ago swallows started to build a nest on a lorry trailer.I knew the trailer might have to go away before the chicks had fledged so I cut the nest of the chassis and placed it on a piece of board so I could pick it up again.

Ok,so I'm obviously better with wildlife than I am with technology so I'll try again! :blush:
Five eggs were laid in total which hatched last weekend.

But the trailer had to go away today to be emptied so I put a stack of pallets as close to the nest site as I could and placed the nest inside.

And gradually move the pallets out of harms way throughout the day.

The family seem quite content with their new abode.This was one of the adults taking a quick breather and enjoying the new view this afternoon. :)
