Bird of the Week Challenge: 18th May: Flights of Fancy

Happy Monday everyone. Trust you have all had a lovely weekend and hope you saw some gorgeous birds. I was lucky enough to spot a couple of male Scarlet Robins on Saturday! No photographic evidence though.


This week lets see shots of birds in flight.

I found a great spot on the week-end for practising on birds in flight. I won't reveal how many shots ended up being deleted though.
