Not Moving So Fast Now...

The last time I was here, there was one bird that tortmented me endlessly, darting and diving day after day around 'La Laguna' (the local lake). These Blue-and-White Swallows (Pygochelidon cyanoleuca) moved so fast I found it almost impossible to focus with my eyes, never mind about with a camera!

So, within a week of returning to these shores, I was extremely pleased to find around 20 of them sat on a wire right outside the front door! Obviously, I raced back to get the camera and took a few shots...


A spot of grooming...


I've now made it my [impossible?] mission to get some in flight - wish me luck!



Tommy's Back!

I have returned to Sudamérica once more! (With a new address for the blog too...)

And what better way to announce my return than with a Vermilion Flycatcher (Pyrocephalus rubinus)?? Here's a beautiful female sat out the front of the house :)

Got to go, time to turn everything off for Earth Hour :)
