Common House Martin. Rather dingy underparts, no white on uppertail coverts, black chin.

Geoff, I thought those characters were features of Asian House Martin, and I would have said that's what this bird is. Are you sure it's Common?

Thank you for help!

Oh yes. A simple typo.

It is, indeed, Asian House Martin.

Thanks Geoff. I thought maybe it was a typo, but you had me doubting myself and worrying I had somehow misunderstood the ID features.
