Slightly odd Barn Swallow – Jubail

Whilst birding the Jubail area recently I came across a slightly odd looking . It had a large amount of white in the wing, which when originally seen from distance perched on a reed made it look very interesting.

Instead, it turned out to be a Swallow made to look even more strange by its very long and thin tail streamers. The plumage appears to rule out all other swallows apart from Barn Swallow.
