Hi Everyone,
I was at the Western Treatment Plant at Werribee today and saw a
White-bellied Sea-Eagle flying low over Lake Borrie. The bird suddenly dived
into some reeds on the the side of the lake and after a short but heated
argument with 3 Swamp Harriers, took flight with the Harrier's lunch (a
Eurasian Coot) and landed on a nearby nesting box to eat it.
Another bird of interest today was a Black Falcon, near the main sewerage
drain, on Farm Road app. 1km south of the administration buildings.

Cheers, Paul.
