  1. In spring the orange sunsets are visited by the White-tailed Swift. Large flocks of this speedy bird can bee seen hunting insects, high upon the springtime thermals. They have migrated from northern Asia and will probably never touch the ground in Australia during their 5 month visit; sleeping on the wing. It is locally believed that the appearance of these birds signifies the arrival of storms, hence their common name ‘Stormbird’.
