CAN ANYONE ANSWER THIS QUESTION –
sept 17 /2013…4 young swallows seem not to have migrated-have seen them flying,but making lot of noise in nest-
is there a chance they could go, or do they need parents to take them…seems sad
MY ANSWER IS –
Because of these comments, I have been finding out more about this. It seems, as it’s still September, the swallows could be fattening themselves up for the long journey.
Swallows do migrate in October, so there’s time yet for them to migrate and going back to their nest on a night is brilliant – it will be a safe place for them – and warm.
So – they could know they are not fit and fat enough to fly with the others and are waiting for the right momvne.
I hope they are not with you in the middle of October
Let me know what happens to them and thanks for getting in touch and for caring about them
