Unusual Woodswallow nest site.

I visit an industrial estate here on the Gold Coast regularly. In one particular street there are always a small group, up to 10, White-Breasted Woodswallows flying around in what you’d say is not a particularly Woodswallowly spot. Last week I found out why noticing a nearly fledged brood poking their heads out the gap where the street light is fixed to a telegraph pole. A short look down the street showed that at least two other families taking advantage of the light fitting on other poles. Seems to be a bit of a theme in the area. Last year saw a pair of wood ducks emerging from the Pacific Fair shopping centre sign on the Gold Coast Highway.
