Some interesting sightings from a half-day trip to Werribee (Victoria) today:

Glossy Ibis (12)
Black-tailed Native-hen (1)
Cape Barren Goose (1)
Buff-banded Rail (2)
Australian Crake (1)
Double-banded Plover (many, 1 leucistic - apparently the same bird has been
seen annually for 5 or 6 years, according to Bob Swindley)
Horsfield's Bronze-cuckoo (3)
Little Grassbird (2 - excellent close views out in the open)
Banded Lapwing (8+) - in the "usual" paddocks
Whistling Kite (12+)
Etc, etc.

Always a rewarding place to visit.
