This months Birding World suggests there are no accepted WP records of Asian House Martin.
I am aware of claims from Sweden and Israel. Does anyone know the status of these records? Are the published photos deemed just not to to be enough in terms of ratifyng the records or are there outstanding ID issues?
Also does anyone know about reports of possibles in Egypt years ago that apparently turned out to be considered dusky-looking (eastern?) House Martins?
Any comments would be appreciated either here or in a PM to
