I quite enjoy Swift ID but am relatively novice regarding old world Swifts, so these are just my impressions, I'll look forward to hearing the opinions of more experienced observers.

I see little head projection, broad hips, a diffuse large pale throat, and vent perhaps paler than belly, which all make me think Pallid Swift. I don't offer it as a suggested ID, however - I'm curious to see what others suggest here.
