Welcome windfall

Long grass can become very dry and that makes it vulnerable to one of nature’s most powerful forces, fire. Thousands of tonnes of dry grass is enough to fuel a blazing inferno. Migrating sand martins brave the smoke to take advantage of the tiny insects that flee the flames. This feast is a welcome windfall to a bird on a thousand mile journey from Africa to Europe
