I know this isn't a very good shot, but I thought the perspective was unusual. It almost looks more like an airliner than a bird - but at least it doesn't look like Batman.

Not sure what's wrong with this Barn Swallow. It's as if he is moulting. But this is an adult (long tail feathers) and we're in the middle of breeding season, so that can't be. These birds moult in winter. Maybe he just looks scruffy...

Excellent shot Paul. I always like to see photos of successful fishing trips.

Jack...Those are incredibly nice shots. You said they were "difficult blighters to snap." That's an understatement Jack. I would have said "almost impossible to snap."
Great job.

Primo shot, Shalu. Great sharpness from front to back.

Thanks LD.
Happy trails.

European Bee-eater. Perhaps the bird with the most inappropriate name. I have never seen one eating a bee. They eat them if they cannot find anything else, but they avoid them since they have to remove the sting first
