I have just heard of a sighting of a *possible* White-throated Needletail yesterday in Johnsonville:
"Larger than a Welcome Swallow, agile flight."

I hope it's true!
Do you know where exactly it was seen in Johnsonville? Because I would like to see if I can find anything.

Thanks.
I'll try to get out next week. Hopefully it's still around by then, if it actually is one.
