G'day birding Aus-o-philes

I am snowed under at the moment and my annual swift sighting summary is going 
to be late but I would like to remind and request people to let me have any 
Needletail or fork-tailed swift sightings you may make.  Also send them in to 
the atlases as well please.

Channel-billed Cuckoos, and Palaearctic waders have been moving through Central 
and Western Provinces for some weeks now so Swifts should not be far away.  
There are masses of Black-faced Cuckoo-shrikes around here at the moment, 
frantically hunting down anything that looks like an invertebrate - to fill 
their fuel tanks before heading down to Aus.

Enjoy your birding
