Good morning folks,
Here's another image of the Migrant Hawker in flight.
I think the main reason I got lucky with this individual was that he
was still warming up and not yet thinking about breakfast giving me that extra
couple of seconds to catch him.
Many thanks for all the comments and UA's on my previous effort, they are valued greatly.
Colin

A very impressive inflight capture of the Migrant Hawker, an image which I have been trying to capture all summer so I can appreciate the skill involved...
