Swallow babies, definitely!
We used to have several nests at our old house in our tiny shed. Here we've more sheds than you can shake a stick at and not a single swallow. I miss their friendly chatter. The restarts and sparrows aren't the same!

We took him outside to the only hole in the wall where he could have come through and placed him by the stones and grass.
Sat with him or her for a bit, left him for a few minutes went back out and he or she had gone.
No cats about so hopefully got somewhere safe.

Almost ready to go a lot of the parents mates have been around today doing a fly past the nest. Flapping about. Being a bird expert ;) I would have thought they are trying to get them to fly.

Yes, they talk to them, encourage them to fly by shouting, swooping, flying past the nest. Mum and Dad both do it.

The buyers of your house will be the ones to see it but its likely that either the parents, or perhaps the offspring having inherited their birthplace, will return every year for up to a decade, come in through any open door or window elsewhere in the property and fly around like mad in that one room only.

That was my experience here, in fact its probably a lot more than 10 years because my place had been empty since the late 70's but perhaps they had found a way in during that period.

I removed one old nest but it was very very old.
