What else is flying?

I thought I’d keep the camera pointed skywards for a bit, just to see what I could capture:Woodpigeon (Columba palumbus)
A woodpigeon – plenty of those, but they fly fast so getting an “in-flight” shot was an achievement for me;

Goldfinch (Carduelis carduelis) in flight

A goldfinch: they fly in bursts, alternating powered flight with folded-wing gliding;
Swallow (Hirundo rustica)
A swallow, twisting and turning to catch insects,

Swift (Apus apus)

and a swift – as usual too high for a really clear shot, but identifiable by the wing shape and white chin.
