A swallow nest nearly fell down from the wall underneath a residential building in Tuen Mun. Inspectors went to scene and found that there were four baby birds sitting on the nest and the mother bird kept on flying around to feed them. Inspectors then climbed up a ladder and tried to consolidate the nest with duct tape. However, the wall was full of dust and dirt which was impossible to do so. Then inspectors removed the nest carefully from its original area, created and secured a platform on a nearby water pipe and place the nest on it. Observed for a file, fortunately, the mother bird realized the change and continued to feed their babies.
