Hi All
I will be visiting Melbourne next week for a conference and then work, but will be free on Wednesday afternoon (23 March). I'm keen to see a couple of the species that have been seen recently at Werribee, so if anybody is planning on visiting the Western Treatment Plant that afternoon, I would be keen to see if I can tag along with you, naturally contributing to petrol and human refueling costs. I am staying at the Southbank Travelodge and won't have access to a car but I am sure I could get my self to anywhere that would be convenient for a pick-up if I had enough guidance.

If that doesn't eventuate, I'd be interested in sites that I could easily reach myself where I'd have a chance of seeing Blue Winged Parrot, White Fronted Chats, smaller terns and/or Striated Fieldwren. Also, apart from the nearby Botanic gardens, is there anywhere near the Southbank area worth exploring in the morning or evening (weather permitting?) that I could reach on foot?

I am heading for Melbourne on Sunday morning, but can be contacted on this email address until Saturday evening and then on my gmail account (copied above) or my mobile (0412 208587) after that.
