...well actually perhaps 'our' Swallows in South Africa, but that's semantics!
We were contacted recently by ringers in Soutn Africa who have been ringing a large Swallow roost in the Durbanville area of the Cape (red marker on the map below). At last count they'd caught around 1500 birds and had 5 controls - four British and one Spanish. We'll keep the blog updated as and when they get more controls, but so far:

Thanks to Lee Silks for keeping us up to date with the roost catches.
