Bet­ter late than never

Country Life Every Week - - Letters To The Editor -

TO my de­light and plea­sure, two swal­lows came rock­et­ing in on June 9, un­nerv­ing the poor wag­tail that had a nest nearby (Town Mouse and Let­ters, June 7). I have a con­do­minium of var­i­ous birds’ nests on a small brick ledge un­der the eaves of the house. Last year, the swal­lows’ nest with four young about to fledge fell off the wall. I left the fledglings alone and, next morn­ing, they were gone.

The new pair of swal­lows is now pre­par­ing a nest in the same place—let’s hope they do a bet­ter job this time, as it does seem very late. I won­der what de­layed them. Priscilla Cor­bett, by email
