Special Birds: Crag Martin

The Crag Martin Ptyonoprogne rupestris is a locally common species in the south of the region, particularly in the Balkans. It breeds in gorges, on cliffs and sometimes on buildings. It is a rather stocky, compact hirundine with only a shallow forked tail. Photo by Nigel Sprowell taken at Paklenica, Croatia.
