I have had small numbers (single figures) of Fork-tailed Swifts over Yorkeys
Knob on 19/10 and 26/11 with a couple over Cattana on 27/11.
I had 28 Needletails heading south over Yorkeys over 45 minutes on 14/11.

of Townsville this season??
now is about the time that they arrive on the lowlands around Cairns, but I'm
yet to see any...
