Just passing on an observation reported to me by
long-standing birdo Fred T. H. Smith of Kew in Melbourne.
27 August 2005 a birding friend of Fred's (Fred Anderson) recorded a Yellow Wagtail at the Broadford Sewage
ponds which are adjacent to the Hume Freeway north of Melbourne. The
sewage ponds are just north of the town and require permission to access I
Atlas of Victorian Wildlife currently has no records of the species for Victoria
so this may be a first sighting of the species.
