Swifts at the Don

Earlier this week I spent about 40 minutes watching a group of Swallows, Swifts and House Martins performing aerobatics in their search for insects over the River Don at Dyce. Their speed and constant change in direction made trying to get a photograph of them a real challenge especially against a cloudy backdrop. Of the 200 or so photographs I took, only a handful were half decent and of those there were only three that I liked.
