White-throated Needletails over Wonga Beach

White-throated Needletails are rarely seen Summer visitors down the eastern half of mainland Australia. They breed in the Himilayas and virtually live on the wing following their insect food supply which may be pushed along by a weather front as is happening today at Wonga. Probably the largest of all the swifts and certainly the fastest which you will see if you can catch up with them. Often heard before seen.
