The smallest of the hirundines feeds mainly over water, quite often chirping as it goes.

Sand Martin - Wilmslow Park
I finally got round to doing something that I had planned on doing a long time ago, photographing the Sand Martin colony at Wilmslow Park. Just a short walk from home, these great little hirundines make the sandy banks of the River Bollin there home each year. Not the easiest bird to photograph in flight, I wanted to focus on the nest holes and hopefully get a something better than a blur. I still managed lots of blurs, but also managed to get some of them whilst almost still.
