Hi all
the first Sydney sighting for me this season a- flock of 25-30 birds seen 
approx 7:45am over my house in North Turramurra (northern Sydney).  They were 
low down and circling - feeding on something. The birds were calling as well - 
little chittering calls.  All the birds I could ID for sure were WTNTS, 
although I looked for Fork-tailed (or other) Swifts as we are encouraged to do 
early in the season.
As in prior seasons, I will record my sightings for Mike Tarburton and submit a 
total at the end of the summer- I use a very basic spreadsheet to do this.  (I 
do this so that if I sees flocks that aren't significant in some way I have a 
record but don't clog up b-aus with reports of 5 birds or similar. In the 
height of summer I may see a small number of birds for several consecutive days 
over my house.) If anybody would like a copy to use for their own recordings, 
please contact me offline.
Tom Wilson.
