There was a group of around 12 to 15 over Ginninderra Creek yesterday behind the BMX track and they seemed to be working their way down stream as I rode my pushie.  When I got home to Latham I stayed out side for a while as I heard some yellow-tailed blacks calling.  While there I counted 5 White-throated Needle Tails flying over my place.  A new bird for my garden survey!

After reading Martin's email, I raced outside and immediately saw several individual Needletails flying over, then a few more, then a large flock of probably 20-30 birds, and another smaller flock in the distance.
