Hi Bob,  

I have been conducting Swift Parrot surveys with my fellow ENHSers, following up some work we did in May with Chris Tzaros and Dean Ingwersen.

We have found a large group (about 1,000) in the Bodalla State Forest on Mitchells Ridge Road.  According to Chris, this is the largest single gathering of Swifties ever recorded.  It is quite amazing to be surrounded by these birds, not able to hear anything else over their calls.  

Thought I'd let you know,

Julie Morgan
