Hi Mike,

WTNTs (6 individuals) observed circling above Looking Glass Bay Park,
Gladesville on the northern bank of Parramatta River c. 1700 h on Wednesday,
23 March 2016. Altitude: 15 m above ground level. No storm front or other
obvious air disturbances, but there had been light rain showers in the area
in the 48 hrs prior to the sighting. It was difficult to determine what
overall direction they were travelling in, but they were probably moving
slowly in a WNW or NW direction because (according to the BoM records)
Sydney was experiencing weak ESE winds at that time.

Latitude: 33 deg 50.5 min S; Longitude: 151 deg 7.8 min E.
