Is Mike Tarbuton still out there collecting data on swifts? If so, "Hi Mike" 

Yesterday, Nov 1st 2009, I saw a flock of approximately 500 White-throated 
Needletails moving south, just east of Brisbane, QLD. I was driving north-east 
along Lytton Road, just south of the Brisbane River, towards Fisherman Islands, 
probably a couple of kilometres or so away from the coast to the east at Wynnum.

Yes, I did stop the car - the swifts were an impressive sight!

Cheers - Trevor.
