Have you seen chicks in the nest this week?

Martin Hughes-Games Martin Hughes-Games | 16:21 UK time, Friday, 2 October 2009

We are getting reports from people up and down the country of chicks still being fed in the nest, in October? Quite a number of house martins in particular.

I hadn't realised how late some birds will still nest until I started looking into it, but if you have noticed chicks in the nest again this week, could you tell us below by posting a comment. We'd like to try to build up a picture of just how late birds are nesting this year, and which species they are.

Thank you very much!
