Thank you for the kind words. I have included a link to the archived version of your message as a comment to my original blog entry.
I note your comment about Dusky Woodswallows being woodland, rather than garden birds. Out here in darkest Carwoola the places that I usually see them are perched on phone lines, or shrubs along fence lines, overlooking paddocks with hosses. The way they hawk from these perches makes me think they are feeding on the insects stirred up by the horses (or those attracted by equine by-.products). I could, but won't, pursue a simile about Cattle Egrets!
When the birds deign to enter my GBS site they ae generally well up in the sky, certainly over tree-top height.
