Welcome Swallow (Image ID 29293)
Photographed byDouglas Coughran on Fri 28th Jul, 2017 and uploaded on Tue 30th Jan, 2018 .
CommentA difficult, challenging shot, fast dark bird, glare from the sandy beach. A few Welcome Swallows were interested in resting on the beach and regularly taking to flight to feed. I took the opportunity as it presented, though slightly different from what I was expecting considering the species.
