A flock of at least 10 White-browed Woodswallows were foraging in the spelled 
horse paddock 50m west of Hollows Circuit, Macgregor.
They utilised the fence wires, flying down into the grassed area for prey.
Females were more common than males. Or perhaps there were maturing juveniles?

The area they were using is between Victor Chang Street and Wanderly Circuit.
Ginninderra Creek’s corridor is 500m to the north; confirming for me that it is 
still vital for connectivity.

These open spaces are under threat of development one assumes. They are crossed 
by high tension cables and other ‘poles and wires’ and strong winds.
