Committee's view
Background
The bird was initially thought to be an Asian House Martin and only later identified by Frank Rheindt from NUS who was scrolling through photographs on eBird. The long, extensive white rump, which is almost twice as wide as the black tail portion, points to a Siberian House Martin. Moreover, Asian House Martins rarely have tails as deeply forked as the photographed bird.
