Did you ever wonder what happened to the Cliff Swallows that used to nest under the bridge joining the east and west banks of Trent University? For a few years a small number nested under the road bridge that is presently being worked on. This year a thriving colony has set up under the new walking/cycling trail bridge by the rowing club. About thirty nests can be seen under the bridge and most of them now have young peering out of the domed clay nests.
