House martins return

House martins arrived back in the neighbourhood two nights ago. After tea tonight I noticed a pair have already started nest building. Interestingly they have chosen a gable end of a brand new build to nest under. This wasn’t even here last year but the first nest is going up on it. I’m hoping there will be at least one other nest on last years site as there were three martins in the air at the same time at one point. The most pleasing thing is it is all visible from the back door….you couldn’t ask for more!!!
