Hawk Cliff vs Swallow Cliff.
At Hawk Cliff, access via Dexter Line east of Port Stanley, we spotted so many swallows in cliff-edge nests (and no hawks) a name change to the location was in order. On Hunter-Crossley Line (running east and west, about two miles south of Belmont) we spotted a dozen pairs of nest-building swallows under a bridge, and one pair in a tree cavity.

Swallows beyond counting

Mud nests are still under construction
