Swallows and House Martins everywhere

House Martins have been coming and nest on the house for many years, however, this year there are more than ever. They are everywhere you look sometimes and this year they’ve been joined by a lot of Swallows. We think the Swallows have been about before, but always outnumbered by the House Martins. This year, although still outnumbered, there are a lot more of them.

This is a shot I managed to snap up earlier once the clouds finally dispersed. They are tough things to photograph close up as the speed and sudden change of direction is crazy.
