Take off, Dungeness, England

by Hadden Turner,

While I was waiting to see Britain's first breeding Purple Herons this flock of Sand Martins perched on the barbed wire a few metres away. As I edged closer to the flock the wind picked up and the whole flock flew towards me and over my head and back on the wire. It was an unforgeable experience and resulted in this picture. And to make my day, the Purple Heron showed up as well. I used; Canon 10D, Tamron 70-300mm telemacro lens.
