g'day list readers
There are reports of WTNT's around Sydney at Ryde, Chatswood,
Ashfield and Arcadia for example. Those from the Central coast so
far this season include sightings at: Bateau Bay, Mangrove Mtn,
Narara, and Wamberal Lagoon, but as you say Michael - none from Avoca!
Most sightings I have gleaned or been sent so far this season are
from Qld. If there are fewer birds in total, maybe they do not have
to forage over all Australian Forests - particularly in the southern
half of the continent.
Happy swift watching
(& if you find any please let me know - thank you)

one seen this year despite plenty of cumulo-nimbus. Where are they?
