Author's notes

Unusual Sighting of at least 60 + Fork-tailed (Pacific) Swift, 1st time I have seen them in this area and I have only seen them once before at Shellharbour 10yrs ago and no were near as many. Chris Brandis phoned me as I was observing them in the Sky at Dolphin Point south of Ulladulla after he had just seen a lot moving north at Racecourse Beach Ulladulla 4klms away, so we the numbers could have larger.
