Hi All,

Last Monday 05/03/2007 a flock of approximately 25 White-Tailed Needletails were seen hawking over the road about 1km from Cape Bruny lighthouse. The road at this point traverses a relevatively exposed ridge overlooking the lighthouse. Nicole and I got out of the car to have a better look and were treated to some spectacular low (approximately 1m), high speed passes at very close quarters. The WTNT were observed for about 5 minutes before the flock moved out of view. There was a strong southerly wind ahead of rain which arrived about 10 minutes later.
