Really well done on the swifts.

Just double check your lark ID.

It is African pipit.

It's just the way it's folded makes it look like its white-tipped.

LBJs made simple says short tail which on that alone would rule our spike-heeled and the group in the book is "bill long and decurved"

That would also mean this bird would not fit in that group.

You must share with me what settings you use when you take these great pictures of birds in flight. Thanks for sharing the pictures. Regards
