Below is a list of all the species I have seen at a woodland remnant in western Victoria that I visit four or five times a year.  I conducted a monthly study here in 1989-1994, the results of which will appear in the Corella journal.  I recently began doing three 20 minute counts here again, although they not as frequent or regular as I no longer live in Moyston. 
Some may remember my posting about the welcome reappearance of a Diamond Firetail after an 8 year absence.  I recently saw a single bird there again, but again could not find another one, but let's hope.  Still no sign of Hooded Robin, Buff-rumped Thornbill, Speckled Warbler or whiteface yet.  The list below summarises the results of five visits to each transect over the last nine months, a total of 15 visits for 50 species of birds.
