Clip: Episode 3 | 3m | Video has closed captioning.

A variety of insect species – from hoverflies to leaf roller moths – explode in population at the waterhole. Lured by the steady food source, a pair of swallows moves into the adjacent hide to build a new nest from the surrounding mud. These migrating birds have traveled from the south of the African continent to breed in Tanzania. And our hidden cameras are there to capture this new family.
