Hi there,

We had a very enjoyable Sunday morning at Mooroduc Quarry, Mt Eliza 
(about an hour's drive south of Melbourne on the Mornington 
Peninsula) with perfect weather. All up we had 41 species - not bad 
for a morning's work. Here's our list:

 (BTW anyone planning to travel to Victoria be warned - there may be 
a few of us walking around who haven't had access to hot water and 
thus showers for a while due to lack of gas. Well, at least we can still drink
