All summer I’ve been putting out dishes of water at ground level in the garden to help hedgehogs and any other small mammals, with no evidence of visitors. Yesterday, proof that there are hedgehogs on our Walton Park estate in Pannal came in a very unwelcome way; a squashed hog on the road about 150 yards down.

Thanks Will - that could be the answer. I have two artificial nests just round the side of the house from where the birds were clustering - so far unoccupied, but this gives me more hope for next spring!

They could be checking out future nest sites, Ginni. House Martins can still be seen in this area as late as October/November if conditions are favourable, so I don't think the majority will be considering migration yet. However it may be that, as with other migratory species, the young birds leave us before the adults and it may have been these youngsters establishing a mental map of their home area before leaving.

On Sunday morning at 8.30 a.m. 5/8/18, I saw between 6-8 House Martins ‘clustering’ on the wall at the apex of our house roof. They were twittering and flying in and out, meanwhile occasionally clinging to the wall. This only lasted for a few minutes; they then dispersed. Martins breed two houses down in artificial nests. Since then, I haven’t seen these Martins over our house. Could they have been checking out future nest sites? Is it too early for them to think about leaving on migration?
