On a recent walk I concentrated on observing Swallows around the Parkland. At the time of taking these images a few days ago they were beginning to congregate. Some adults were still providing some food to the immature. The immature continued getting in plenty of flying practice.
All were feeding up before their departure on migration to Winter quarters in Africa.
Not the easiest of out door sports is trying to photograph swallows as the streak across low over grass catching flies. Even shooting at eleven frames a second it is somewhat of a 'Hit and Miss" affair.
Since taking this walk I have revisited the area and found that most of the Swallows have gone.
