While on holiday at Broulee over the weekend I came across six White-breasted Woodswallows hawking, calling, and occasionally resting in high dead branches of trees at 17:45 h on Friday 3 Feb. They were  around the bridge that crosses the entrance to Malabar Lagoon from the Moruya River, 2 km east of Moruya along the road that follows the northern bank of the river to the aerodrome. Four of the birds were resighted on the following morning (11:00 h), Saturday 4 February. No doubt as to identity. Poor but diagnostic photos available. This is well to the south of their normal range along the east coast.
