The House Martin is well known for it's intricate nest building with mud in the eaves of buildings. I have a recent photo of this nest, which I consider should be part of the Opus information.
I also have the Classic pose of two Juveniles poking their noses out of the nest awaiting feeding.
Perhaps these Photos could be considered for inclusion to complete the House Martin story.

Hi Brian

Thanks very much for this offer. Could you upload one or two of the nest pictures to this thread, so that one could be selected for the article.

I attach a couple of nest photos as requested.

If you only want one then I think the "Eyes" have it. No 2 perhaps?

Thanks for these Brian.

We agreed on No 2, and it is now in place on the article.

Again, thanks very much.
