Hi all,

Dropped into the Point Cook bird hide today - and came across a flock of 10 
Crested Pigeon near the car park at the bird hide. This is easily the farthest 
south I've seen them - what is the status of CP in the Geelong district?

There were also a couple of Pink Eared Duck.

Not much else apart from an abundance of Grey Teal, Black Duck, Mountain Duck, 
and Hoary-headed Grebe. With all the recent rain there's a lot of water about 
which has dispersed a lot of the waders, waterfowl etc. The environmental 
context of Point Cook contrasted sharply with my last visit in January.
