Three members of BirdLife Sunshine Coast had an exceptional WTN experience 
during the Challenge Count today at Beerwah, Sunshine Coast. Ten low-flying (50 
m) WTN quickly became 20, then 40. As we followed their upward path, they 
joined a mass of at least 400 birds, all rapidly ascending, until lost to view. 
Time was 0950, weather was fine and sunny, no wind, no cloud.
A lifer for Ian, biggest WTN flock for both John and myself, and first sighting 
this season.
