Hi all
after having spent and interesting long weekend at Hawks Nest (NSW mid-North Coast) on our way home today, just as we were leaving Hawks Nest, saw a group of about 30 Fork Tailed Swifts - all flying quite low and the flock well spread out. My first swifts this season, and good to see Fork Taileds as well. (Time about 9:30 am; weather warm, cloudy with some sun, calm.) Amongst plenty of other birds, I also saw Southern Emu Wrens (Limekilns Rd, Tea Gardens and Winda Woppa Spit); immature Brahminy Kite (Bennetts Beach, Hawks Nest); Satin & Leaden Flycatchers together, immature Brush Cuckoo, Pheasant Coucal about 15 metres up a tree (Old Mine Rd, Myall Lakes NP); male Regent Bowerbird (over open heath(!) near Dark Point, Myall Lakes NP).
