G'day Birding Ausers

FTS I have received or seen very few sightings of Fork-tailed Swifts this season. Do you have any sightings to report? I was going looking for them up the Mitchell Hwy in Qld last week but a little water changed those plans.

WTNT Plenty of White-throated Needletails in Victoria last week. I located 20 groups on Thursday and Friday along the Princes Hwy between Rosedale (Vic) and Narooma (NSW). The larger groups were in Victoria totalling 620 birds. BUT! coming back to Melbourne yesterday along the same route I never scored one WTNT. Have they all popped over to Tassie?

Happy swift watching
