Abstract: While bird-watching at Xlendi Bay in Gozo on 1st April 1979 we witnessed an unusual behaviour. It was a cold day, the sky was heavily overcast and it was drizzling all the time. Then, under the cornice on the top floor of a two storey house still under construction, we saw a flock of about 120 House Martins Delichon urbica clinging with their feet to the vertical wall, huddled together and sheltering from the rain.
