Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Uncommon to locally fairly common summer migrant to Mediterranean region, from winter grounds in Africa. Like Common Swift, nests in buildings and cliff faces. Very similar to Common Swift but with slightly paler plumage overall (plumage tones of both species greatly influenced by lighting), subtly blunter wings, and less deeply forked tail. Many dark swifts seen in southern Europe are not safely identified in the field.
