Swallows stay at home in Belper

They say that one swallow does not a summer make - but in this case there may be enough for a fine day.

This fantastic picture of a nest full of young swallows was taken by Belper photographer Dave Hughes, a past winner of our Life Thru The Lense competition.

Dave, of Belper Lane, said: “I took this photo on Sunday in some stables situated on Dalley Lane. There are six nests there, but this was the only one with any young in it as the others have flown.

“It seems to me that lazy teenagers aren’t just common with humans!”
