I looked at a past Hunter Bird report and saw another (but unconfirmed)
record of a House Swift over Edgeworth (a Newcastle suburb) in 1997. Has
this been since confirmed? Perhaps House Swifts (and also Glossy Swiftlets)
may straggle every now and then further south? But I will still be just as
content in seeing my first Fork-tailed Swift for now. I have also heard a
few White-rumped Swiftlets turning up in NSW over the years as well. It pays
to check out all Swifts/Swiftlets.

Are there any other records of Swiftlets in NSW Alan.
