Barn Swallow × House Martin hybrid. With c.200 hirundines in rain at Gadebridge Park football pitch. More details & pics on my blog here: http://hemelbirding.blogspot.co.uk/2013/09/barn-swallow-x-house-martin-hybrid-at.html.

I'm not sure from the photos why this isn't a leucistic Swallow; the only House Martin like feature i can see is the white rump, everything else looks like Swallow

I take that back; read the description on your blog

Hi melodious, thanks for the comments. Yes I too thought an aberrant leucistic Swallow was more likely, but as you say, it's the other points I mentioned on my blog that made it a hybrid.
