Needletail sighting Topaz

White-throated Needletail 15 on Nov 14 at 1730 flying rapidly about over paddocks in humid cloudy conditions at Old Boonjie Road, Topaz, FNQ, our first of the season.
Pacific Swift one two days earlier Nov 12, belting eastwards and in Innisfail before I had time to call it out!  3 over Nerada Tea Estate Nov 7
Very unusual sighting of a Great Bowerbird here at our rainforest site at 730m Nov 14, new for the property and unexpected as the nearest are around Walkamin and Granite Gorge, not often this species wanders

G’day Michael,

I saw a flock of ~20 Needletails wheeling around North Maleny (Sunshine Coast hinterland, SEQ) at 6:45 am this morning.  Weather was hot and clear.

Regards, Laurie
