Susan Myers, Peter Lansely and I spent a pleasant hour watching the Northern
Shoveler, which was still present yesterday afternoon at the Western Treatment
Plant, Werribee.  It was on Lake Borrie just to the north of the dead trees on
the eastern edge.

As well, we had excellent views of Freckled Duck, Glossy Ibis, Orange-bellied
Parrot, White-breasted Sea-Eagle, Banded Stilt and nearly 90 other species.

Quite a good day really, given the pretty unpleasant weather conditions.
