The Second Brood

Here are more photos of the Barn Swallows at Mochika-hama. My guess is that it's the same couple which has already raised one successful brood earlier in June. Their former nest seems to be too dirty to reuse, so the parent birds decided to build a new one on the other side of the shop's door in the same way as the old one. The parents are now busy incubating their new eggs. Hope to see the new generation very soon!

PS. I'm now having problem with my own blog. The Followers and Recent Comments boxes are not showing up in my browsers. I normally use Firefox and both gadgets are not showing. I tried Google Chrome and the result was the same. However, both gadgets work well when I use IE. I'm wondering if any of you are also unable to see my Followers and Recent Comments as well. Lots of people seem to be suffering the same problem as mine too....


You can see the newly built nest on the sign on the left and the old one on the right.

Your Swallows are at a similar stage to mine. No probs with Blogger here but I switched to Firefox as my Windows IE was so slow.

I use Firefox because my IE was slow too, Phil....and now I have problems with Firefox as well...

Good for those Swallows! I'm using Firefox too and no, I can't see the Followers and Recent Comments. I tried IE and they're not visible either.

Blogger often seems to get problems that mysteriously fix them selves after a few days. I tried on 3 browsers and none of them showed followers/comments.

You can still follow your blog (the 'follow' option os in the top left hand corner).

I had the comments gadget but found the formatting was poor so removed it.
