Late breeders?

Just got back from Filey and the sand martins are still feeding young. Now popping out of the edge of the tunnel so ready to fledge but it seems rather late. Anything else out there?

Broods of greenfinches and goldfinches still being fed by parents this week in the garden. It does seem a long season as we've had fledgling finches (bull/green/gold/chaff) consistently since May.
