Around the time (probably 0820hr) and on the same day (Thursday, 11th
January), that Cathy was seeing her needletails in Ryde, I was driving
through the Sydney suburb of Canada Bay with around 40 needletails swirling
around on either side of the road and overhead.

Always good to see them!

On Thursday, 11 January at 8:30am I saw approximately 30 White-throated
Needletails circling around Burrows Park (-33.814229, 151.114767) in
Ryde in the heart of the city slowly heading south towards Parramatta
River. There could have been more, it wasn't possible to tell if the
same birds were circling around or there were more groups moving
through. I couldn't make out any Fork-tailed Swifts in the flock. The
weather was fine but unsettled.
