I was at Woody Head this morning carrying out a wader survey when I noticed a flock of 35+ low flying swifts.  Expecting them to be the usual White-throated Needletails I was pleasantly surprised to see that they were, in fact, Fork-tailed Swifts.  Fork-tails usually only occur as individuals or in small numbers in large flocks of Needletails in this area.  There was a flock of 50+ Fork-tailed Swifts at Brooms Head in 2002, however.  Woody Head and Brooms Head are both on the NSW North Coast NE of Grafton.
