Glided over the southern section of the Neathermead in a straight line heading SW. The first thing I noticed was its large size. There were swallows flying overhead all day, and this one stuck out immediately as noticeably large. It stuck out as different also because it was fairly uniformly dark, including the body. It seemed like a dark gray/black color underneath, and even under backlighting, the body seemed too dark for TRSW. These fieldmarks point toward adult female. The wings looked two toned, dark in the shoulders, and lighter below (for what it's worth - from starling by flight style, shape, size...). Finally, the tail was notched when open, which also pointed towards PUMA.
