Youngsters in the Garden

On Sunday, I was out in the rare spell of sunshine to try (again) to capture some Housemartins and Swallows in flight.

There was a young Blackbird in the garden that really didn’t mind my presence. I got within 4 metres of it and it was happy for me to snap away. Then a young Bluetit arrived and the shot was helped with the fact that one of the cats was in the garden so it was more concerned about watching it than watching me so managed to get a good shot of it.

I also did manage at least one shot of a Housemartin in flight.
