Hi All,

I just got back from Tassie and saw 2 groups of WTNT while over there.

1st  -  2 birds just out of Strahan flying within 10ft of the road.  At one stage one 'swooped' us only a metre over our heads. What a bird! And what an amazing wing span they have with close views!!

2nd  - 50 + on the hwy about 30km out of swansea.


Hi Netters,

               My brother Frank and the caravan park owner were fishing from the beach at Scamander on the east coast Friday 11/2, when looking far to the south they thought they saw what looked like a swarm of locusts. As it came closer it turned out to be a flock of approx 2000 Needletails. The birds were working the underside of a storm cloud and headed north disappearing into the distance.


All the Best

David Siems
