Essential Mud Gathering

The local Swallows have spent the last week or so busily gathering the mud they vitally need to build their nests with. As you may have read wet muddy areas are hard to come by with a very dry April and May but due to the good work of certain people a roadside pool is constantly made wet and therefore 3-4 Swallow pairs are able to collect what they need. This is the closest i've ever been to this species and i am really appreciating how lovely they are and also getting a good insight into how they go about the mud collecting process.....enjoy!
