F#19: House Martin Griffon

House Martin Griffon (avum pilosus delichon)

Small, migratory griffon

Spending its winters in Africa and Asia, the house griffin arrives in the UK in may or June to spend the summer months. 

They congregate around areas of standing water, where they can be seen swooping low across the surface to catch flies, imcluding midges and mosquitos.
