Censusing of nests of the swallow Hirundo rustica and the house martin Delichon urbica in the urban area of the city of Genoa Biennial period 1998-1999 Censimento di nidi di Rondine Hirundo rustica e di Balestruccio Delichon urbica nellarea urbana della citta di Genova Biennio 1998-1999

The authors present the outcomes of an enquiry carried out during 1998/99 about Swallow ' Hirundo rustica and House Martin's Delichon urbica nests in four sample routes of Genoa urban area. As for the Swallow, data are given about reproduction success of the first and the second brood, number of chicks flying away during the two broods, and nests distribution per km. As for the House Martin, nests' distributions is given again, together with their typologies and number of nests occupied by couples. But, in this case - due to particular nest's structure - it was rather difficult to lookinside and verify the number of chicks. There is no correspondance between the increasing ofnidification, both of Swallows and House Martins - ascertained with this research - and the alarming news spread by non specialistic literature, about a marked drop, expecially of Swallow. So thats - to avoid in the future similar groundless scoops - the authors underline the importance of an in-depth and systematic survery to bring out the real situation of Swallow and House Martin for whole Italy.
