Night flying birds?

Need some help to ID some night flying creatures. I too am at Palm Cove for the
eclipse and like everyone else was too engrossed with the spectacle we were
witnessing to notice what the birds were doing. I'm just across from the netted
beach pool on the northernmost end of the beach. There is a bright light which
must be attracting insects and also what I suspect are insectivorous bats. But
do any birds do this sort of behaviour also? They are too small and fast for me
to see clearly.
There are a few vocal beach stone curlews around too.
