Swallow Chicks about to fledge

The swallow chicks up at the ruined church are at least 2 weeks old now.

Two chicks had already made it out of the nest and were sat on to the ajoining rafters.
The other 3 chicks were all fluffed up and good to go.

And maybe they would have gone but for the sound of blaring bagpipes bunging up their earoles.
They were shrinking back into the nest wondering what the hell was going on.
Poor fings.

Anyway, all 5 chicks (where’s No 6?) may well have flown their nests tomorrow.
I might nip up early morning to see if they’ve gone.
