Yesterday I was in Sutherland at Strathy and counted 23 swallows sitting on an electric wire. It was the hottest day I can remember in Sept. My neighbour told me that his swallows got their last brood out of the nest on second week of Sept. I did wonder if this was too late for them to feed and develop and then travel?
