[Notas - Normas] Nota do Artista [Polaco]
The Sand Martin (Riparia riparia) is a migratory passerine bird in the swallow family.

It has a wide range in summer, embracing practically the whole of Europe and the Mediterranean countries, part of northern Asia and also North America, where it is called Bank Swallow. It winters in eastern and southern Africa, southern Asia and South America.

The Sand Martin appears towards the end of March, just in advance of the Barn Swallow, as the first of its family, flitting over the larger sheets of water in search of early flies.

Its brown back, small size and quicker, jerkier flight separate it at once from Swallows and House Martins. Later parties accompany Swallows, but for a time, varying according to weather, the birds remain at these large waters and does not visit its nesting haunts.

Hi Marcin

This is a very cute shot. Quality may not be the best, but I love the two wee heads poking out looking for the next feed. TFS.

Bellissimo scatto, ottima compo e presentazione.

Hi Marcin,
It is a bit narrative..but nevertheless a good compo and good DOF play too.

Bardzo ciekawe zdjecie. Brzegowki w akcji - fajnie ujete i zakomponowane. Ladnie widac spojrzenia pisklakow skupione na rodzicu. Od razu widac o co chodzi.
