Dear Lawrie,

Dight's Falls (for overseas people, just a few Kms. from Melbourne G.P.O. & on
the Yarra River) has always been an excellent area to see Darters.  When I did a
Birds of Yarra Bend/Studley Park Survey a few years ago, over a 3 year period,
we frequently saw one or two there.

Also, Willsmere Billabong, (in Kew, an eastern suburb of Melbourne) is another
good spot.  A month ago, I had a Darter & an Azure Kingfisher in the bins at the
same time.

Another good area for Darters is Banyule Flats Billabong (Heidelberg, Vic) on
the Yarra.
