House Martin, Porthlow Beach, St. Mary's Isles of Scilly May 2010
As with the Swallows many House Martins were brought in by the blocking winds, though not in the shear numbers as seen with Swallows. These birds at Porthlow Beach were amongst the easiest to photograph and even then it wasn't that easy.
Swallow, Porthlow Beach, St. Mary's Isles of Scilly May 2010
Many thousands of Swallows were 'grounded' by the persistent North Easterlies with concentrations at numerous locations around the islands
Swallow, Porth Hellick Pool, St. Mary's Isles of Scilly May 2010
Many thousands of Swallows were 'grounded' by the persistent North Easterlies with concentrations at numerous locations around the islands; these birds showed very well right in front of the hide at Porth Hellick where they were clearly knackered.
