For what it is worth, whilst they are common here, they are not evenly distributed. Proximity to water and suitable nesting sites surely has raised recorded numbers and influenced the recorded abundance patterns over the years. As the locations of GBS Sites varies over the years, this will have impacted on GBS results. Even so The GBS Report shows some regularity. I believe I have never seen one perched within my GBS area (28 years), but frequently flying over, often high and sometimes barely visible. No way of knowing what the break up between flying over and perching is.

May not be out of the norm for allot of COG members

In the  20  years plus I have lived in this home I have NEVER had welcome swallows in my yard there were 4 that I saw

Maybe due to the low and poor quality of the lakes etc

I am  nowhere near any body of water
