With Western Treatment Complex at Werribee closed to birders due to
flooding, the Norwegian Blues will be using a radically different route,
including Churchill NP/ Lysterfield, Pakenham, Tooradin, Hastings,
Mornington, Edithvale and Braeside.  We would be most grateful if anyone
could give us some directions or guidance about specific birds we should
look out for, or specific spots along or close to that route that might be
worth a few minutes' stop.  All assistance up to 3:59 pm on Saturday is
legit, and will be very much appreciated.

The two best Mornington Peninsula (south of Melbourne) spots I know of are Moorooduc Quarry and Baldry's Crossing. Have a look the BayBOCA outing reports at to get some idea of species you can find at these and other Peninsula sites.

Target species I can think of at one particular site:

Great Crested Grebe at Devilbend Reservoir
Bell Miner at Moorooduc Quarry (you may find Varied Sitella and Olive-backed Oriole as well)
