These guys are restless right now. They gather in huge numbers to fly around the area looking for food or whatever. And they are noisy! This is at a farm but sometimes I see thousands of them from my window. You notice them from he noise. And looking out the sky is black!

A wader I see sometimes in small numbers. But it usually visits every year.

This summer I found the waders in another place as they usually are. The water was to deep at the place they used to be. But I liked the change. This place is more open so it is easier to see them.

First time I was so close to the Green Sandpiper. I spotted it behind some grass and I was afraid to move to scare it away. In the last shot it got some company. A juvenile White wagtail.  :)

One of my top ten favorites among birds. The Swift. I like the sound from them, I like the look, I like the challenge to capture them. They never sit down. They fly straight in to the nest without hesitation. Like a bullet. And turnes like crazy in mid air.

This day I was lucky :) I can take a hundred images and one is good. They also serve as a measure of my brain and reaction times. As long as I can capture them I am still "young" despite what the number of years tells me. I only wish they were here a little bit longer. 2.5 months is too little.
