These Swallows are mobbing the Spotted Flycatcher I posted they are refurbishing an old nest with white feathers very active at the moment I have seven pairs nesting altogether.

Well Done, Sheila

Good shots. They aren't easy to photograph, are they? Interesting the one grabbing a feather. I'd heard they do this, but I've never seen it.

Superb photos

Really good - they are so difficult to capture in flight.

I think I am lucky that they are a few pairs nesting in my garden and surrounding barns so was able to just stand outside and take loads of shots as they are always flying about.I did not know they had feathers in there beaks until I uploaded the photo's.
