That's great having a nest on your property,Anton -I thought swifts and swallows had 5 or 6 chicks.I remember when we lived up north and had a backyard with a loo at the end (oh those were the days lol) every year a bunch of swallows nested in the there and I used to wonder at how they flew threw the small gaps on the top of the door - sort of triangles but I also remember the open yellow mouths of the chicks Lol. Next year maybe you can set up a webcam, they do return each year I believe.

 You did very well to get that one in flight - I mean they really move.I wonder when they'll fledge and fly to Africa
