    Why do they put expiry dates on cartons of sour cream?

    Bit of variety there. We're just starting to get the Welcome swallows back here too.
    It's the little things!

    Cheers, Greg C.

      Thanks Greg. There were hundreds of them flying around the lake. They are very quick as you know - a bit of a challenge to get them in flight.

    Ah yes, but one must rise to the Challenge!

      Well done you! I've had success on a prior occasion so I'll post a couple when I can find them.

        Here is my blended version of several welcome swallows that kept darting in to keep an eye on the young one on the post.

            Can you find it? I'd love to see it.

          Quality not great, but the birds were feeding on insects between the trees and they are super fast as well. Had a bit of fun with it so it's all good.

            Cool combo Greg. IQ looks ok to me. Fun to do this stuff and you're right - they are very fast. They usually forage at around 30 to 40 kph and get up to 50 to 65 kph when traveling over distances.
