Hirundo smithii   Wire-tailed Swallow  Draadstertswael

Wire-tailed Swallow
Kaingo Private Game Reserve, Mar 2023

Probably resident in the far north of the Waterberg along the Palala and Mogol rivers but the few records available suggest that it is rare and localised (recorded in 2% of the Waterberg pentads); in pairs; this bird was one of a pair building a nest under a ledge overhanging the dam.
