The gale force SW winds eased this morning and we had blue sky making a change from the cold wet conditions we have been experiencing. Perfect for having our morning coffee on the verandah and notice we had a visit from some White-breasted Wood-swallows Artamus leucorhynchus. They were busy swooping around the tree tops then coming to land on the roof ridge and then I notice a few decided that the weather vane was an ideal spot to take a break.
They stayed around for awhile, on the wing catching insects before the forecast rain and strong winds returned in the late afternoon.
They like the other wood-swallows are migrants to our area whilst in Australia's north they are sedentary.
