Same for me at Kambah about 2 p.m., except too high, I could not see them at all. ID just on sound.

At about 12pm a flock of 30 Woodswallows (White-browed/Masked- too high to tell) flew over Cook heading nw.

For a couple of hours this morning/afternoon I could hear woodswallows over Carwoola.  There were about 50 birds in the flock and they were flying at a moderate height and fair speed so  a bit difficult to keep track of them.  As far as I could work the flock comprised roughly equal numbers of Dusky and Masked Woodswallows: this surprised me, but I didn't see a single White-browed.
