The House Martin

When I was injured I went out looking for Owls on my scooter and came across a small pond with what thought we’re Swallows only to be informed after that they were House Martins. The evening was a nice one with lots of light still shining on the small pond, our all round the edges. The Martin’s were coming in collecting mud and flying off to build their nests. A beautiful little bird like the Swallow they fly really fast so it was a great opportunity to try and get them as they landed at the edge of the pond. I crept to an area so the sun was behind me and observed them how often they landed. They seem to have a mass collection then fly fast for another 5 minutes before starting again.

The distances together with a very bright reflection made things a little hard, even with the Sony 200-600, but after editing I was very happy with the results.
