While driving along Bullock Paddock Road yesterday around 9.40am yesterday, I 
saw a White-throated Needletail fly by! I pulled over and saw a group of 4 
Needletails, and a couple of Welcome Swallows, cruising around with no 
noticeable haste nor specific direction of travel. I then noticed a larger 
group of Needletails (around 20 birds) considerably higher, but also in no 
particular rush and, it seemed, no particular place to go. The group gradually 
dispersed over the next five minutes.

The weather was sunny and calm - rather different to the usual pre-storm or 
pre-weather-change conditions I’ve usually associated with these birds in the 
past! (Google Earth lat/long is approx 35.3 S 149 E)
