G’day Bird Observers, I am working on the last seasons WTNT report so if you 
have unreported sightings I would love to receive them please.

One interesting observation was by Demetrios Bertzeletos who saw an estimated 
6,000 WTNT at Surfside 22nd March.  This would be the majority of the total 
population and might explain why most observeres made fewer sightings than in 
the previous season.  If you did not see this flock you had less birds to make 
up the numbers you & I did see.  Your sightings are important - as they helped 
me give advice to both the NSW & Australian Governments earlier this year on 
new regulations to protect this species.  Thanks for your help.

Happy swift watching and reporting


Mike Tarburton.
