   Wed 21 Jan Pacific Swift (5) Margate, Tabors Road
   At about 8.30pm at the start of our evening walk, we were alerted to 5
   birds calling overhead. Without binoculars we were uncertain but
   suspected Pacific Swift. This was confirmed after returning home and
   listening to their call on an app.

   Mon 19 Jan Freckled Duck (40) Queechy Lake
   40 Freckled Ducks - northern end - flushed from willows. Also Dusky
   Moorhen, Australasian Shovellers, Hardheads etc. [Moderator's note:
   this is the largest number of Freckled Ducks seen at one site since the
   species began to appear in Tasmania nearly two years ago and suggests
   that the influx may still be occurring. PB]
