One Swallow doesn't make a Summer, but this guy got mine off to a great start back in May. I've always found it difficult to photograph these birds. They're either sat up on an unsightly wire high up, or swooping across the sky making it difficult to follow and capture them. This one however at Titchwell beach, kindly sat on a fence post at a much more dignified height and allowed me to get set up to take some decent shots. I was also lucky enough to have some decent sunlight to show off that wonderful blue, something that is difficult to see when the bird is in flight.
