Watch our live Swallow nest

The nest is at our Fingringhoe Wick nature reserve, on the Colne Estuary, south-east of Colchester, among the wooden beams of the garage next door to our visitor centre. 

Please note that this is live, unedited footage of Swallows; at times, it is possible that there may be disturbing images of the natural world.
