I use the electronic shutter, but than give a rolling shutter effect on the background, though less so on the bird. Worth experimenting with mechanical shutter if there is much in the background.

The rolling shutter effect kicks in if we are panning birds in horizontal direction. It can be avoided by holding the camera in portrait orientation, instead of "landscape".

Some great swallow photos in your post, and in the whole thread.
