Hi Mike (and fellow Birding-Aus people…),


I hope that this note finds you well…


My first migratory swift record for this season was yesterday.


At 1:00pm, approximately 50 x White-throated Needletails were seen over the Kennedy Hwy, 43kms south of Mt Garnet and north of the Forty Mile Scrub NP boundary. They were in the main flying across the hwy from the north-west to the south-east, but a small number crossed over the hwy in the opposite direction. Most were about 30 mtrs above the ground, but about a third were hawking at twice this height above the treetops. Habitat was tropical woodland, weather was hot with a steady easterly breeze and just ahead of a trough line and cool change…


No Fork-tailed (Pacific) Swifts were among them.


Cheers for now,


Martin Cachard
