White- throated Needletails, Marlborough

Postby NicDillon » Wed Mar 04, 2020 11:45 am

At 11.30 am I had 8 or 9 White-throated Needletails pass over my property on Rapaura Road, Marlborough. I didn't get an accurate count as they were passing through and disappeared behind trees. There may well have been more. They were flying in an easterly direction.
