About 9am today, we thought we had a large flock of Needletails or Swifts doing 
their thing over our house at Brooms Head, northern NSW.  However, a closer 
look showed they were all Common Terns.  We watched for about a minute before 
they moved out over the ocean, but can't say how long it might have been 
happening.  We've not observed this behaviour in the past.  
There has been a group of about thirty on the lagoon, but this mob would have 
exceeded a hundred.
It was spectacular while it lasted.
Is this common?

The conservation battle is never finally won; the development battle is.
