Im no bird expert, but either one is not easy to get a good photo of.
This is well done. Nice pose, the mud is great, nice catchlight in the eye.
When I look over it in Adobe Camera Raw, it suggests its about 1/2 stop underexposed, and when this is corrected, it does look a little better I think.
Ive uploaded a mod just with the exposure adjusted, - you can scroll up this page, click the modifications page and view large.
Hope this is helpful
If pressed for an ID, I would guess Swallow.
It looks like a swallow to me, Rick, and the swift is a plain sooty brown. Click on the blue words to see the RSPB info.
You did well to capture the swallow, and have a lovely sheen on the wings as well as a catchlight in its eye.
The image is interesting because it's showing the bird in the mud. As you say, probably collecting it to make its nest.
agree a swallow...have seen them do this before..but never been quick enough to get the camera out!!
Nice action shot. Definately a Swallow. They have much longer tail than a Swift.
Nice shot Rick.
