Hi all
Yesterday Dion Hobcroft reported the Fork-tailed Swifts on the southerly change through Sydney. The change hit Dungog just on dark so unfortunately couldn't see anything at all even if they were there. Prior to that there was a strong Northerly blowing and I watched 6 White-throated Needletails and a pair of Hobbies with a juvenile bird all hawking the sky together. Mum & Dad presumably teaching the kid how to feed. A good size and flight comparison between there two speedy species was great to watch
