Red-rumped Swallow, Leasowe

Same place same bird? Its the third time in 5 years there has been a Red-rumped Swallow around the pony paddocks near Leasowe Lighthouse. This time it was found by John Coup and I managed to get down after work. With Molly huffing and puffing behind me I made quick time from the lighthouse car park to the furthest kissing gate just in time to see the bird disappear distantly over houses. Several brief views later  I finally picked the bird up flying back in from my left and the small group of birders and photographers all enjoyed good views.

Cracking pix Phil, I know how hard it was to get these :) Maybe try one of these as a test on the Forums as I've tried to sort the quota problem :)
