Hi Birders,
While passing through the town of Somerset, Qld I spotted a group of Welcome 
Swallows sitting on the powerlines near the camping grounds. I decided to stop 
and have a look at some that appeared different.
Several of the swallows had stark white breasts and bellies instead of the 
usual grey, there was no black bar across chest as would be expected in Barn 
Swallows but the underparts where clearly different from the other swallows 
sitting with them. Their fork tails clearly extended past the wings.  I managed 
a few reasonable photos for anyone who would be interested in seeing them.
If you have any ideas I would be very interested to hear your thoughts.
Glenn McRae
Stanthorpe, Qld
