Yesterday I had a stroll around the ponds on the Deakin University Waurn Ponds Campus.  Along the banks of one of the ponds,  was a pair of  Black-Fronted Plovers.  Also in the same pond was a pair of Australasian Grebes, with about 4 young.

Other notable birds was a Common Bronze Wing Pigeon and the distant call of a Yellow Tailed Black Cockatoo.

Can anyone tell me if both Black-fronted Plovers and Australasian Grebes are common in the Geelong area?

Anyone wanting more precise details of the location of the pond, dont hesitate to email me.
