Hello everyone just thought id let you know that I spotted
with Dan Blunt a Red-Rumped Swallow over the Broome Bird
It was flying with atleast 80 Tree Martins and 10 Barn
It hung around for approx 5min and several photos were
There are very few records in W.A. and this would be only the
3rd record for Broome.
We had them regularly over the Bird Observatory in the
evenings for approx 2 months during December 99 till March 00. This coincided
with over 100 being recorded in Kununurra.
I will have a better look tommorow as I only noticed the
numbers Martins and Swallows as I was leaving the Observatory and a lot of
birds had already started to head towards the mangroves where they
I hope to locate a pre roost as I did in 2000 and photograph
