A second brood of barn swallow chicks

It seems as if the barn swallows have got a second brood of chicks. They are swirling up and down the air and sweeping over our heads like bomb fighters practicing their flight skills. The parents have busy days getting the chicks strong enough and ready for the long flight south.

According to old folklore high-flying swallows mean fair weather and looking at our swallows now we can hopefully expect another fine day tomorrow.
