Hi Lynne,

There are two reasonably reliable places to see them in Victoria. The first
is Kilarney Beach near Port Fairy. There is another spot, though, much
closer to Melbourne - and that is Black Rock Reserve near Barwon Heads
(sometimes known as 13th Beach, as it is near the 13th Beach Golf Course).
Enter these coordinates into Google Maps to see the location:
-38.282795,144.426418. The site is also good for Pacific Golden Plover and
Ruddy Turnstone. I've seen Hooded Plover here too, but they are usually
found about a kilometre to the west of this site where the nesting sites
have been roped off from the general public.

I have an urge to watch Sanderlings. We live in Castlemaine. Where would be
the best place to go to give me the best chance of sitting somewhere and
watching these guys dance up and down the beach?
