Swallows are the most acrobatic hirundines- and there’s nowhere more impressive to watch them than feeding, skimming over water. Fe
males are most attracted to males with the longest and most symmetrical ‘streamers’ – long tail feathers. They catch hundreds of insects, mostly flies, and also drink from the water surface, as you can see from the photo’s I took recently. Best times to see them are early or dusk, or when the skies are overcast and insects flying low over land or water. Conditions: sun and cloud, but no rain due. Temperature: Max 13- Min 4 c.
