Before I moved up to Melbourne to live, I had an excellent raptor site
on my doorstep in Geelong.  The Fyansford Common is a great spot,
probably about 20 hectares of riverbank and open grassy flats, tucked
into the suburban edge of Geelong, and whilst I've never had 8 species
in one day (things take a bit longer outside the tropics), the quality
over time is high.  The most in one birding session was 7 raptor species
(I think).
