Hi All,

Have just posted some pics of the nest swiftlet seen in Broome, NW WA two days 
ago as Cyclone Laurence passed to the west of the town then tracked south-east. 
Nest swiftlets are incredibly difficult to identify. Nevertheless, given the 
rather square-tipped tail with a very weak notch, Black-nest Swiftlet would 
appear to be the most likely candidate.

The best image is in the following gallery of Australian vagrants (because it is taxonomic order it 
is about 12 rows down)

and all four images are posted here

The bird was first found by the guys at the Broome Bird Observatory 
( and the photographs were taken by 
Adrian Boyle.
