Big Peter & The Swallows



All the pictures here are taken not by me but Big Pete, regular visitors to here might have seen his pictures before. He did have is own blog for a while as well.



He was out walking the tracks and out of the way trails of Derbyshire when he came across a number of Swallows collecting mud from these puddles.

To see them land on the ground is a rare sight, but to see them collecting mud for the nest and having a camera on hand to capture it is rarer still... Great pictures again Peter... thanks for sharing.

These are great captures by Pete! Please give him my best! And all my best to you and Jane as well. Sorry I havne't been around much. My daughter just graduated from High school so things should be calming down a bit :)

Hi Tom, thanks for your lovely comment on my blog. You may remember me as being Linda from the Gold Coast, Australia. I've left a couple of comments recently on your new joint venture with Nancy (Hyde Cheshire) which I absolutely love....

Great pictures by Pete. It is great when it all comes together: great subject, unusual circumstance, good camera and a eye for an opportunity for a great picture.

I just got back from Belgium. Had a great time, did much and learned a lot.
