Thu 27White-throated Needletail
Mossman, Queensland
Approximately 2000 White-throated Needletail, with approximately 50 Fork-tailed Swift mixed in moving in a westerly direction seen over Mossman. This is my first sighting of such a large flock this season. The flock stretched out of sight to the south and the north as the moved in a westerly direction so the estimate of 2000 birds is on the conservative side. eBird checklist

Fri 14highlightGrey Wagtail
Birthday Creek Falls - Paluma Range National Park
One individual, non-breeding plumage, observed hopping upstream from the falls at approx. 10am. Bird was flighty and flew to low branches when initially approached, then continued upstream, maintaing a significant distance from us. One distant and heavily cropped photograph attached here to support the record. I note there is one previous record from the same location from 1993.

highlightChannel-billed Cuckoo
Nossal High School, Berwick
Heard the CBC calling whilst teaching during class. On the way out of work managed to locate the bird hiding in the pines presumably from the mobbing of other birds. Not doubt this is one of the CBC currently residing in the Berwick area, have seen now twice up the road at Wilson Botanic Park in 2014. Apologies for poor photo - only had iPhone on me eBird checklist Further information
