Hi Philip,
I was nearby around the same time!
At the slope near Athllon Dr cnr Learmonth Dr, I saw about 10 WTNs above me. At some moment they flew past so low at 5m above ground!
Also a Brown Goshawk was further up in the trees.
My confirmed tick w photo evidence. I did not look hard enough at Jervis Bay few years ago.

Whilst waiting for only a couple minutes, to be picked up to go to the COG meeting tonight, at 7 p.m. at the top of my driveway, 3 White-throated Needletails flew over me heading westwards, fast and direct.

My first obs of the species for this summer. I always like to get them on my list for the year.
