Zo Clark said:Thats a good idea. I will probably be able to contribute to this thread since I usually see Swifts overhead the garden, House Martins under the eaves of the houses in the neighbourhood and Swallows at the Orchard or Bown Hill - more often at Bown Hill cause there’s a Barn. So I will robably be able to send any of those 3 when they arrive here they havnt arived here for me yet though
I look forward to your photos Zo.

Iv just found out what happened now. I got the 2 Forums mixed up and thought it was this forum I sent it on
sorry for the mistake
Its just as valid on either, and in fact, both threads, so thank you.
I've added the correction to both posts, with credits to you and Bob
In reply to Bobs_Retired:
Thank you Bob for the correction.
I've placed a post edit correction in this and the Conwy post with acknowledgment to both Zo and yourself.
Trip to Whitby 29/04/22 coincided with my first swallow sightings of the year. Heavily cropped images as I was set up for landscape.
More by luck than judgement...
Sand Martins today

Nice photo PB
If its any consolation, most of mine were luck more than judgement.
If its any help, I've found for my swift and swallow photos 1/2000 sec shutter seems to give the best results, though sometimes, depending on the light, 1/4000 will deliver a crisp photo, but only sometimes.
