Swift Signting – 18 Oct 2020

Hi all
saw my first swifts of the spring/summer today at Central Coast Wetlands, Tuggerah, NSW.
Approx 100 birds at peak, although unless I can actually count individually, I think that’s conservative – all WT Needletails that I could see.  It was a large group of birds that moved back and forth over the central lake of the wetlands area.  Very low at times and moving as a large loose circling mass.  Numbers varied for the 30+ minutes they were observable – at points no birds could be seen and peak was approx 100 (but as noted that’s conservative).
This year’s sheet or sightings has been opened up – hoping for many more!
