Swallows in Suffolk.

The Swallows have been in Suffolk for a few weeks now and have started nest building and mating, I spent an enjoyable couple of hours trying to capture their breeding behaviour.

Thank you.

The site these were taken at provides a lovely background however, you have to check the wind direction to ensure the birds are facing the right way to give this background.

Thanks Pete, that's exactly where they were taken.


I assume you know the location? If not, pm me.
