Cardigan RNLI come to rescue of fallen House Martin's nest
Last weekend, 29th July, Cardigan RNLI volunteers came to the rescue after a House Martin's nest fell off the wall of the RNLI Station at Poppit Sands
The helmet was then attached onto the wall where the original nest had been in the hope that the parents would come back and continue to feed their chicks.
Thankfully the parent birds didn't seem to mind the change in appearance of the nest and continue to feed the young chicks who don't appear to have suffered too badly from the fall and are almost ready to leave the nest for pastures new.
