Although we are experiencing a 'real ' winter here bird opportunities still abound.
Last week the Werribee Wagtails went to Brimbank Park just off the Western Ring Road.
It is a deep valley(55 metres below the basalt western plains) carved out by the Maribyrnong River over many centuries. There are plenty of River Red Gums and plenty of birds. There are plenty of walking trails and it is very sheltered.
We saw many raptors here is our bird list.
The Western Treatment Plant is still interesting, there were many Curlew Sandpipers and the last count of Godwits was 20, they were all down on the Borrow Pits.
