There was an interesting anomaly on the the Bureau's Doppler Wind radar
yesterday afternoon in Melbourne. At around 15:19 you will notice a blue
streak originating in Lilydale and moving towards Melbourne, disappearing
at 16:07.

Could this be bird/bat movements?

Similar examples occurred in Sydney earlier in the year. Apparently the
orange streak originating in Camden (20:31) and heading southwest is birds
or bats late in the day.

Can anyone confirm large bird/bat movements in the Camden area that this
could represent?
