   1000s of swifts around this morning north of the city - mainly
   needletails, but I had c100 Fork-tailed Swifts in total mainly around

   Fork-tailed Swift Meakin Park, Kingston, Logan City
   During a bird survey this morning as part of Logan City Council's
   revegetation project along Slacks Creek, I observed 2 or 3 Fork-tailed
   Swifts mixed in with a flock of approximately 15 White-throated
   Needletails. The birds were hawking over low eucalypts at around 5:30.
   Nice to see this species in SEQ.
