Good evening all

                              A couple of weeks ago as my mate and I headed
down to Kakadu they had 30mm of rain the previous evening which had
triggered a flying ant hatch and this in turn had set the scene for
Fork-tailed Swifts to be fairly close to the road and I was lucky enough to
get a few shots. Also of note was that above these Swifts were some Oriental
Pratincole much higher up feeding as well. I have also put up on the website
some old shots that I took of White-throated Needletail last year and the
Swiftlets from PNG last Sept just to give you some comparison. Kindest
Regards Geoff
