A Pied Wagtail resting on a fence wire at the Kilchoman dunes, the colourful Machair providing the background.
I like Swallows, I think they are such elegant flyers. If only they weren’t so difficult to photograph, especially in flight. This shot is the only decent one from a large number of attempts one afternoon at Kilchoman. At least I’ve got both states in one picture, in flight and at rest.
Two (or may be three? Not sure about the one flying in the background) Blackbirds just outside Kilchoman House on a beautiful June afternoon on Islay. The black one in flight is the male, the brown one on the grass the female.
