15 November 2009 - Red Rock, NSW, Oz

Needle-tailed Swifts - Finally managed to grab the camera whilst one flock of 30+ birds was passing through.

This one has 'needle tails' - and you can make out the dark feet!

Same bird as above.

A strange looking bird in the photograph. In active moult: old 3 outermost primaries, all other primaries are new. Secondaries; all being replaced. Why the breast pattern? Who knows!

Many of them simply didn't look like Neele-tailed; more like Alpine in shape.

Nice to get a few pics of them.
