Rachelle asked if WTN's might be seen by themselves?

Sometimes they are by themselves, but they most often work their way over 
Australia in groups. However, even large groups have birds on the edges and 
I sometimes see only one or two, but if you have the time and the geography 
allows you can detect the larger part of the group, that might be out of 
sight to you from where you are located.

They certainly prefer to hawk over forest and woodland: which I would 
expect the creek you refer to, to be like.

Keep looking for them, they are a lovely bird to watch in the air.
