While waiting for my car to be serviced I walked to the sewage works and wetlands to see what was going on.  I recorded the number of birds on each pond, between the ponds and Iin the turf farm. 
In the sewage works I recorded 713 birds of 38 species.  It was rather a case of "the usual suspects" with 7 ducks (blue-billed totalling 12, pink-eared 14 and shoveler 61) 2 little grassbirds and one golden-headed cisticola.
Entering Kelly's Swamp I immediately saw a black-shouldered kite near the Bittern hide. Again, water was just visible in front of this hide. Walking through to the Tadorna hide things were quite quiet, as one might expect approaching noon on a warm day, but from that hide I observed an intermediate egret wading about over by the cattle paddocks.
