Some Hirundines and the Butcher bird.

This week has seen some quite nice weather with less wind so I've managed to get out and shoot alot of images. It was a real treat to find lots of Hirundines frequenting a stretch of barbed wire fence, using the car as a hide was perfect and I soon shot in the region of 15gig on Swallows, House Martins and Sand Martins in what was excellent afternoon light.

The Red-backed Shrike stayed for a few days so I had to go and have another session photographing it when there were fewer people around, it was in the same hedge by the railway and turned out to be a bit of a poser!
