I will be heading down to Melbourne this weekend before attending a work conference the following Monday. I would certainly love to see again some birds which I have seen before but do not see in Sydney. Would anybody know of any places close to Melbourne or Geelong where I can see the following. I have not arranged any pass to Werribee but if anybody is heading that way over the weekend, could I tag along.
Cape Barren Goose
Black-faced Shag
Blue-winged Parrots
Orange-bellied Parrots
Rufous Bristlebirds
Hooded Plover
Banded Stilts
Fairy Terns
Any rarities at the moment?
I will spend the Saturday night close to Geelong.
Thanks in advance.
