It is quite possible Gil that your friend did see a Plains Wanderer.
There have been a number of records for the grasslands west of Werribee
(Live Bomb Range Road is from memory the area they are seen in).  There
are no records yet for the Melbourne Water Western Treatment Plant, but
we keep looking.
