At Richard Allen’s banding site at Weddins over the week-end there were a LOT of woodswallows flying around.  These were impossible to count with any confidence, because the flocks were sometimes compact, sometimes diffuse, and when you looked at one flock with binoculars there were yet more distant specks in the far distance.  Certainly hundreds.  The White Box (pictured) was in flower and groups of wsws would sometimes join other species feeding on this.  As this species passes through, sometimes nests, in the Canberra area every few years it is something to watch for.  Well not really ‘watch’:   if they’re in town you won’t miss them provided you’re in the right bit of woodland.
