There are a small number more or less resident around the Werribee
Treatment Complex, and I've seen those fairly regularly between Altona
and Lara along the highway, so your Corio office is within range.  Dry
conditions probably do move more of them into southern Victoria than
normal as well.

Cheers, Lawrie

(PS:  For BA readers, all locations mentioned above are between
Melbourne and Geelong in southern Victoria.)
