Anyone knows if there is a video or more pictures of the Croc and the big fish he got about 2 weeks ago?

I have to accept that it is closer to my guess too ....

It is imposible to be  Barn Swallow Wile...There is white on the head and throat and the tail is much smaller ...Yes Afke said she had seen Barn Swallows earlier in the morning but at least those arent' Barn Swallows

Fani.. the swallows are Barn Swallows or sometimes called European Swallows.. they are the same thing... Tenatively id'd by Afke at NG the flying ones that is.. the pic you have is the Barn Swallow..

Hi Fani and Sabine,

sorry, for me this swallow looks like a 'Chelidon urbica', as the head on the 3rd pic shines blue/violet

And yes the whole impression goes more to a riparia than a hirundo ...

Yes Sabine it is a possibility ...I have checked ...but it looks a little darker from the upper side ...The first pic ...makes me feel not sure about it ...

But of course maybe it is the light ..In fact I couldn't find a good pic of it to compare !!! only a video that shows it  from behind ...
