There are a ruin of an old church about 20km from my town. Many swifts comes here for breeding so it is a great place to try to catch them. But it is a challenge and that´s why it is fun. They moves quickly between trees, stonewalls and the church tower. They are nesting everywhere on this ruin. You can see them swap into a nest but you can never catch it. Unless you put a videocamera running. And I don´t have one.
Last one not great, but fun, captured in the middle of a turn. And they turn quickly. :)

  4. Great flight shots. The forked tail really sets them apart from any of our swifts here in the US.
