I spotted this right at the last moment before it ducked in to the bushes

Good video Willpar :nod: . It goes to show how common they're getting when you see them out and about like that.
I was mightily impressed by all the Swallows. :) :yes:

Bouncy bouncy :)

Well spotted.
And yes the swallows are cool too. That's very similar to what I was trying to photograph a few weeks ago along the river. They're fast though!

The couple I was talking with were on holiday from Torquay. They come down with their caravan. But the deer have been there for the past couple of weeks. They were telling me that they were up higher in the corn field and now and again a head would pop up. The corn has not been cut yet. But I was lucky as I happen to look back from the bottom and spotted them.
Was great to see and they put on a great show. Yes I loved the swallows darting about, it made the video in so many ways.
