    Default House Swift in Portugal

    9 March 2010, I saw an House Swift at the Parque Ambiental in Vilamoura (Algarve)

    We have only nine accepted records of Apus affinis (normally called "Little Swift" in Europe) in Portugal, the last one in 2007.

    Were you the only observer, did you get a good description (take notes), and did you get a photograph?

    If you are confident of your I.D. and have any supporting evidence, then this should be reported to the Portuguese Rarities Committee ( ).
