    Hi Steve, i couldn't find another image of this species in the database. I think this is new for the database. Rasmus, it is indeed very very very far from everything else!

    Common Swift

    This year, I tried hard to get different shots from Swifts instead of just the 'ordinairy' flying-bird-against-the-blue-sky (which were hard as well to get good pics). These two birds tried to enter and leave the nestsite at tje same time. more swift pictures on www.agami.nl

    OK, thanks. I know there is one in India, that is probably still regarded as a subspecies.
