Some musings...

Except perhaps for Werribee, Sewage Ponds are an under recognised resource for both Birds and Birdo's.
There was recent discussion about diverting water from the Broome facility to a golf course ?
(The Birding-Aus Archives Search broker is broke so I could not check out the details)
Here in the Isa, the Pond supervisor allows Birdo's (with identifying binoc's in full view) to pass under the boom gate "out of hours" 
I understand the Alice Springs ponds even has hides.
Is there any body out there who could start compiling an annotated location list of Australia's Sewage Ponds ?
Perhaps the simplest way of keeping such a list up to date would be a Web Page ?
Are there any takers for someone to collate and compile this info ?
Regards, Bob Forsyth, Mount Isa, NW Qld.
