HI Darryl

There is a group of 9 or 10 Black-tailed Godwit on Walsh's lagoon No. 7 at the 
Western Treatment Plant.  They are very easy to see once you are there (with a 
permit or accompanied by a permit holder).  The easiest way to arrange this is 
to go to Melbourne Water's office in Brooklyn (89 Miller's Rd, next door to 
TNT) and get a permit on the spot.  It will cost you $20, and you'll need to 
leave a $50 refundable deposit for a gate key. They give you a map for free.  
For the diversity of species and the quality of the birding, this is extremely 
inexpensive, IMHO.  Permits last 2 years.

Incidentally, this is the lagoon where the Red-necked Phalarope has most 
frequently been seen over the last couple of weeks.

There have also been some Bar-tailed Godwit around the WTP - I think they are 
more often seen near the mouth of the Little River.
