Hi all,

Werribee put on a great show on Saturday (18 July). Allan and Rob Benson,
myself and Alan Morris made the pilgrimage there from Sydney, having 
heard about the place for years. The objective of course was the Orange 
Bellied Parrot.

Results: 18 - 20 OBP's, Australasian Bittern, Lewins Rail, Grey Plovers,
Black Tailed Godwit, Fairy Terns, Black Tailed Native Hens, Spotted 
Crakes, and many more, in fact 95 species for the day.

I highly recommend the place, provided you can get authorised access, of

As an added bonus we saw a number of Black Chinned Honeyeaters at 
Chiltern on the way back.
