The local railways station, (5 trains a day in each direction) is a small wooden structure that is home to a colony of swallows.
From late spring its enjoyable to stand and wait for a train while watching the swallows acrobatically swooping around catching bugs to feed to their young safely ensconced in the numerous nests in the waiting room and under the platform roof.
They may be barn Swallows, Im not sure, but I believe they are not migratory.
I quite like the impresionistic effect that is created by photographing them at a slower shutter speed.
