Walking along Irving Street Phillip this morning I watched two swallows swoop down the ramp of a below-street car-park under one of the new apartment blocks. They perched on a sign and I noticed that one was carrying a feather in its beak.

Within a few seconds the automatic gates began to open to let a car exit and both swallows swooped underneath and went inside.

The presence of the feather in the beak of one and the fact they were a pair made me infer they had begun a nest in there and had already worked out the access routine. I hope people come and go often enough for them to to be able to access as often as they need to
