Hello Birding-ausers

I am compiling information on some important wetlands in 
Victoria for listing in A Directory of Important Wetlands 
in Australia. 
I have built up a good-sized list of waterbirds for 
Mallacoota Inlet but I don't have much information about 
waterbird (and rare species such as Ground Parrot and 
Eastern Bristlebird) use of Howe Flat and Lake Barracoota. 
Can anyone help with interesting records in the 
Mallcoota-Lake Barracoota area (particularly of the above 
mentioned species as well as Striated Heron/Mangrove 
Bittern, Black Bittern and Beach Stone-curlew)? Also, I am 
unsure if Kelp Gull, Osprey or Reef Egret have ever been 
seen within Mallacoota Inlet.

I would greatly appreciate any information on the 
waterbirds of the Sydenham and Tamboon Inlets as well.

Please send any replies direct to me- I can provide a draft 
waterbird list for the locations I have mentioned if that 
would help.
