As high a standard as always Ian, that would be a cracking set of shots for an ordinary Swallow nevermind a Red Rumped.

Phenomenal pics - thanx for sharing. A lot better views than the only two I've had over Cley Windmill. They were flippin miles away in comparison.

Cheers,

Jonny

Ian would say he was just in the right place at the right time, very modest for a great talent, we all benefit from his expertise.
