Sand Martins

Over the last couple of weeks the Sand Martins have been scouring the lower river in search of food. 

The cold weather has done them no favours, but these beautiful elegant little birds have been working overtime, picking up the tiniest of flies from the riverside.

Trying to take photos of them is pretty difficult, since they are always in flight. 

However I spent some time today at a spot where they repeated their flight paths, and managed a few reasonable shots.
