Llanthony Priory

Main Sighting: House Martin with reverse plumage
My brother who runs http://www.chog.org.uk suggested I be in touch about this unique sighting... I observed and videod a House Martin feeding with other Martins around Llanthony Priory and holiday cottage where we stayed, 1/2 mile away (26-31 Jul-14). The bird was distinct and unusual in that the black and white plumage were reversed! I managed to freeze frame the video and could e.mail a photo if requested. I'm wondering if any other sighting have been reported? Richard Taylor
