White-throated Needletails in FNQ

Hi Mike,

On Sunday 08/03/2020 at approx. 4:30pm I recorded a minimum of 7 WTNT flying north low over the McLeod River, about 15kms NW of Mt Carbine, FNQ. The weather was humid and very warm with thunderhead clouds around. It seemed the birds were tracking the river and were flying just above treetop height. Very low numbers up here so far this season for me…
