22 January 2013 Italy: Barn Swallows in Italy | Yesterday I received the summer census from the University of Milan and I’m sorry to inform you that according to the estimates over summer in some areas we had seen a drop of 50% attendance of Barn swallows. At this point only in areas of northern Italy is lost on average about 4% each year. The population of “Italian” swallows is suffering and the next February 20th we will meet with the agricultural colleges to try to make both the students and farmers to encourage the installation of artificial nests and maintenance of permanent grassland or forage. The knowledge that the population of swallows in Northern Europe enjoys good health is very encouraging. I follow your news every day and you are doing a great job.
thank you very much. Mark Lamberti from Piumazzo
Barn Swallows in Italy | January 2011 Snow Cover in Italy By Marco Lamberti
I follow on your site every day the adventures of our little friends and I hope to see them again soon in Italy. There is still two months to the spring and the arrival of the swallows but winter is still in full… In two days 45 cm of snow.
Say hello to the swallows.

Photo of a farm where there’s a window in the doorway,this farmer opens the window all morning because inside there’s a lot of Barn Swallows.
Throughout the night the Barn Swallows are quiet and protected in their nests beneath the steel roof.
