Hi all,
Recently while in Tassie i observed a flock of at least 400 Forest Ravens 
flying in a very tight swirling mass just East of Hobart near Clifton Beach. 
Not sure whether this is unusual but it was a very impressive sight.
Over Easter while camping on the Murray i witnessed early one morning a large 
flock of over 300 Tree Martins again in a tight flock swooping low over a bend 
in the river drinking and apparently bathing whilst on the wing. Again that 
night they returned just prior to dusk and repeated the performance. Nature at 
it's best, what a sight.
Are the size of these flocks unusual and what other flocks of birds that are 
not known for flocking together have others seen.
Regards from Colin.
