Yes.  This is the first record of Swifties from SA that I know of since 1995.  
birds were seen by Adrian in virtually the same spot a few years ago, when a 
large roost was nearby.  Perhaps a large number will arrive there again.  It 
been suggested that the area is a traditional stop before they head home.  It 
intersting that they are back in that very spot again.  Another area that has 
Swift parrots in the 90s in SA is the Bordertown Recreation Reserve (30 or so 
1995) so if anyones going near there on AUG 8/9......
