They finally arrived in Kabalebo: Barn Swallows.
Barn Swallows (Hirundo rustica) are migrant birds and like to stay for a couple of months in Kabalebo. Since 2013 I have been following these migrant birds, taking notes of the date they arrive and the day they departure. They usually stay between February and April in Kabalebo.
I have always seen the Barn Swallows in large flocks on the airstrip of Kabalebo. They are flying very low over the airstrip banking and turning. In flight it is usually pretty difficult to photograph them as they like to fly pretty low and fast at the same time. Only a couple of times I managed to take a picture, during their break.
During their stay they are seen flying over the airstrip together with Grey-breasted Martins or White-winged Swallows.
