Just back from the very soggy area around Dergholm - Poolaijelo in far SW Victoria and over to Penola in South Australia; briefly looking at a range of sites on roadsides, Blue Gum plantations, etc.

Biggest surprises - no treecreepers encountered at all; very common Fallow Deer in the plantations! Blue-faced Honeyeater was slightly unexpected, though I've seen them previously over near Douglas (Vic) which is not that far away. Amazing landscape with all low lying depressions full of water after the great rains.
