Hi All,
I am writing with the hope that the keen observations from this huge 
interactive community of birdwatchers may assist me with my research.
I have recently begun an Honours study through Monash uni on nestling 
growth and development in Welcome Swallows, Fairy Martins and Rainbow 
Bee-eaters and was wondering if anyone knows of possible sites of 
nesting activity/colonies for any of the three species throughout 
The Swallows may begin breeding a bit earlier this year due to our mild 
winter, so early tip-offs would be particularly beneficial.
The Martins and Bee-eaters won't be settling in for a couple of months 
yet, but if anyone knows of activity from last season, it would be a 
great help.
Any assistance is greatly appreciated!
