combination of letters in the text, which I have altered (I hope)
For Melbourne people who are interested there is a Dollarbird at the 
Cranbourne annex [RW's edited spelling] of the Royal Botanical Gardens. It was 
first seen yesterday morning (Sunday) by Dawn Neylan, Peggy Mitchell and I saw 
it  yesterday afternoon. From the carpark take the track to Wylies Creek,   
there are a series of three lakes which overflow into each other, the bird can 
be seen  sitting in a dead tree overlooking the water at the first lake.It 
occasionally flew and we had superb views of the dollar spots in the wing.
White winged Trillers are also present in the park. Cranbourne Gardens are 
situated a few kilometres south of Cranbourne on  the South Gippsland Highway 
on the west side of the road.
