White-throated Needletails NE Victoria (plus as ummary of my other records)

Birding-Ausers and Mike

While driving to Thredbo on Good Friday (30/3/18) I saw at least 3 White-throated Needletails soaring over the road near Shelley in NE Victoria (between Tallangatta and Corryong). Weather was clear as a bell and the birds were seen just above tree height (30+ metres)

I have had scant records of swidts this season (and none at all in NSW). 2 sightings in January at Milne Hill in Brisbane (10+ one day, at least 3 a couple of days later), and a couple of birds seen while driving near Yaarck in Victoria in February – I could get better dates if needed.
