I’ve been to Challacombe Farm before:
It’s teeming with animals for food and fun:

There was a Dunnock on a dunghill:
A shivering Swift with a rare glimpse of its feet came next:

There was a stunning perching Swallow:
And best of all, for me, a House Martin gathering mud for its nest.
It’s all action, here.
