I haven't looked at the site but would estimate a maximum of 120 knots when the bird is in a dive with wings folded. I might need to reduce the estimate with the bird being lighter when unladen! It's a bit like asking how tall was Virginia Woolf.

I remembered this thread when I saw the following in today's Daily Express:

Q What is the velocity of a swallow in mid flight?
A It is estimated that the average cruising airspeed velocity of an unladen European Swallow is roughly 11 metres per second, or 24 miles an hour.

The answer doesn't give a scientific source for the information but I'm sure that it is a reliable reply.
Query solved!

OK Ken ... In my next reincarnation I`ll come back as a swallow and can therefore ignore the Gatsos.
