An apparent WTNT movement in the last 1.5 hours of, mostly, individuals
heading in a generally northerly direction.  The flight appears purposeful
and fast, sometimes with time gaps of minutes between birds flying overhead
the property in Kobble Creek, SEQ.

It's actually hard to say if it's the same birds doing a very wide loop
back and flying over more than once and thus counted more than once.  But
if not, the estimated number of WTNTs that do appear to have followed this
route overhead and away in a northerly direction in that time frame
wouldn't have exceeded 40.
