Adult White-Throated Swallow Feeding The Young

Had such a lovely time watching the adult White-throated Swallows feeding their young.

The young sit patiently waiting for the parents to arrive with the food and as soon as the adult is spotted they open their mouths and start screeching for attention.

Watching for a while it appeared that the young one at either end was the one that got the food and only one chick got fed at a time.

You can see how wide they can open their beaks. Love the shadow of the Adult approaching, looks like Batman.
