Have spotted a flock of swifts over my home in Carina Heights, a suburb in the south of Brisbane, over the past three days.  I eventually worked out that they are white-throated needletails.
They were difficult to identify at first, because the birds seemed to be soaring with there tails spread out, and so created a different silhouette to the more typical "bullet" shape.  I still haven't been able to see if there are other species with them.
