Swallows at Totara Valley

One of the delights this last week has been the dozen or so swallows that have swerved and manoeuvred around us as we have sat outside for meals and tea breaks.  We figured that they were feeding on the flies that ‘hung out’ on the limestone in the heat of the day.  Sometimes one would fly between us… they are amazingly skilled little beasties, and very hard to photograph!
