Morning Dog Walk: Barn Swallow Tail

I take a camera along on my Dog Walks to bring you some of the sightings that I see on my morning walks, these photos are rarely going to be great quality as its hard enough keeping an energetic Dog entertained and get close enough to anything. They also help me identify where species are so that I can plan to return.

I was watching some Barn Swallows catching Flies this morning and wanted to grab a quick shot of one with its tail feathers spread wide to show the white flashes. It’s a sight you don’t see very often as they open their tail feathers to turn and it happens so quickly you often miss it.

If you struggle identifying the difference between Swallows, Swifts and Martins, keep a look out for this week’s Algarve Resident. On sale on Thursday, this month’s article is a quick guide on the differences between them. A few days later it will also be available online.

Here is one just about to gulp down a Fly.
