Adult with the characteristic breast band.
2014-07-25 Kalvebod Fælled, Amager, Denmark
Juveniles in frish plumage: Scaly back and bright on head of one individual and more diffuse breast band than seen in adults. Notice the shape of the dark breast band, lower border straight and horizontal, which separates this species from bright juvenile Barn Swallows. Tail pattern and shape are also different the two species in between.
