Swallow's Nest

A pupil brought in a swallow's best today. The swallows have flown to warmer lands and the nest is empty. We can see where the mud was stuck to the wall and the nice cozy straw inside. We think the swallow is an excellent builder. Enjoy the spring/summer in the Southern Hemisphere! Click here to view more information about the barn swallow on 'Wild Journeys' by RTÉ.

The last photo is from the archives of Leckaun National School's photographs. The swallows had made their homes in the shed.
