How are the survey sites decided for this study? It seems that there are very few in the Deep Bay area, although I think this is probably an important area for nesting Swallows. I'm sure other village ...

I notice that no nests of either species were recorded from the Aberdeen area. It may be worth surveyors having a look over on Ap Lei Chau (Main Street) and there are often Barn Swallows nesting there, and Little Swifts under the main Ap Lei Chau road bridge. Also there are several pairs of swallows nesting in Wong Chuk Hang on some of the larger industrial buildings

There was a nice group of over 50 little swift on sunday end of afternoon flying over Luohu coach station in Shenzhen, I don't knwow wether or not this bird breed in HK or Shenzhen side, but I've noticed them many time there this year, but never so many, so should have a nice colony over there somewhere.
I also have two nest and a few birds reguraly seen in Fumin Shenzhen.
