    i got a text off a becky...can you clean our windows and please remove the birds nest at the front as its caused a mess ...

    well i didnt use my noggin...sorry....well it is august...

    so i was rushing and wanted to be home and so i just thought to keep becky happy and quiet remove the nest and the mess on the window and go home before i get trafficked...
    so i ran up and down and back to my car as i couldnt reach the nest and brought back my new brush and broke the nest (house martin) with the pole and i could just reach inside...so for some reason i did...and ..er..i landed on baby chicks...er...sorry..i didnt know ...i mean it is august ..i just thought it was a dead nest...not so happy with becky....any way ...i did a runner and the mum and dad kept flying back so i dont know if they will be saved....but..sorry...in future...i will ask...is it a dead nest...i really am sorry ..on the day robin williams dies too...god what a bummer...:gush:sorry mr and mrs house martins...er i sh it myself too flying into that nest at the speed you do...

    Up here you can get charged for removing nests in the nesting season, you have to wait until I guess they move on, and even at that I would seek advice before attempting to touch a nest.

    Legal status
    House martins and their nests are fully protected under the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981, which makes it an offence intentionally to kill, injure or take any wild bird. It is an offence to intentionally take, damage or destroy the eggs, young or nest of a house martin whilst it is being build or in use.

    The Act allows for fines up to £5,000 and/or a 6 month prison sentence for every bird, egg or nest destroyed.

    When to see them
    They return to the UK in April, often feeding over wetlands for a while before returning to their traditional nest sites, remaining here until September and October before migrating south.
