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

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.

9 September 2010 Barn Swallows in Italy By Lamberti Marco

I have seen your web site and it’s very beautiful and fantastic that you do so much for the Barn Swallows.Barn Swallow News from Italy  
I started to become interested in the Barn Swallows some time ago, when I was a child there was a big population of barn swallows in our country (now I am 39 years old) and now the Barn Swallow population is not so plentiful. 
But in my town I contribute to a project with people of like minds to protect the Barn Swallow population in our town. 
  
I’m writing from Italy, I know there’s a lot of Swallow that stay in Ebbaken (Nigeria) during the winter but, your work is very important for me and news of your Barn Swallow roost is encouraging. 
   
In this year I discovered a lot of Barn Swallow nests at the home of a farmer (I think about 50 Barn Swallows in total), this is good news because in all of Europe, North of Italy mostly, we have seen a decrease in Barn Swallow numbers of 40% over the past ten years…. 
  
Last Saturday and today I have seen about 20 Barn Swallows I think ready to leave.

Throughout the night the Barn Swallows are quiet and protected in their nests beneath the steel roof.
