Swallow success story hatched at Wroxham Barns

Swallow chicks have become a major attraction at Wroxham Barns thanks to a link-up with the RSPB.

A 'swallowcam' was set up to give visitors a close-up view of a nest at the retail and craft centre's junior farm. Farm manager Eileen Calverley said: 'Five chicks hatched about a week ago and visitors love watching them. The picture quality is very good.'

As part of a successful initiative involving the RSPB, visitors to the Barns in Tunstead Road, Hoveton, can listen to swallow talks at 2.15pm on Saturdays and Sundays.
