At 13.15 hrs, today 20/4/2017,  I was surprised to see a single Fork-tailed
Swift flying over my garden in Altona, Victoria. I live close to Truganina
Swamp reserve and nearby Laverton Creek. The swift first appeared flying
south to north then reappeared over my roof top heading in southerly
direction , which would be towards the mouth of Laverton crk and the bay .
I noted size compared to several Welcome Swallows flying over my garden as
usual, and noted white on rump and smudge under throat. I did not see it
again. Conditions at time of sighting are approximately 25 degrees C with a
25km/h Northerly wind. 40% humidity .
