Hi Ian, I guess you missed it but on 25 October I made a posting with a similar tenor regarding bird numbers at the Eastern Treatment Plant (ETP) SE of Melbourne. That posting was headed 'WATERBIRD BONANZA reaches southern Victoria'. However, your posting allows me to correct some numbers I gave. The total species seen that day was 82 not 77 as and 51 not 46 wetland dependant species were recorded. At the ETP, waterfowl numbers, mainly Hardhead and Grey Teal, peaked in June, when there were >10,000 present. Numbers of those species have declined but Coots have increased steadily and diversity has escalated.
