The nestlings are now very well grown and not being fed as frequently. They make the crucial first flight in the next few days. As soon as they leave the nest they are on their own. They learn to feed themselves and migrate south immediately. Swifts seem to have done very well here this year with higher numbers than 2010/ 2011.
