For a moment they decided to stay put the bare branches standing in the water; some distance away though. Didn't have my tele-conversion lens back then. This was before leaving the Mudgee birding camp, inland N.S.W., way back in May.
Then early September, a chance to see swallows again, this time in a rural garden setting at Warren, inland N.S.W.
cooling off, on the shady side of a rustic birdhouse.
It was too quaint not to include the full picture.
