House Martins

April 26, 2013  •  Leave a Comment

I'm gradually getting through my Spanish images. Most recently I've been concentrating on a series of about 300 shots that I took of House Martins collection mud at the town of El Rocio in the south west, right on the fringe of Donana National Park. It was a busy location, plenty of people to scare the birds off to different puddles, but with patience I managed a few I am pleased with. As always, getting down prone and in the mud with the birds was the best strategy, though my clothes took a beating. The biggest trouble was perhaps isolating a single bird in the multitude, they all seemed to land and take off together! Good fun though, and in some nice late evening sunshine.
