Edithvale wetlands (south of Melb.) is well worth a visit at the moment.
The water has receded since my last visit a fortnight ago and conditions
are ideal for waders, of which there were probably  a couple of
thousand. Pectoral Sandpiper was my highlight for the day. The list is
as follows:

Sharp tailed Sandpiper
Pectoral Sandpiper
Curlew Sandpiper
Red necked Stint
Marsh Sandpiper
Baillons Crake
Spotted Crake
Whiskered Tern
White winged Black  Tern
Yellow billed Spoonbill

Chestnut Teal
Grey Teal
Black fronted Dotterel
Red kneed Dotterel
Purple Swamphen
