Val, I too was at Shoreham on Wednesday, and like you, I didn't see the Osprey which roosted in pines just south of Cliff Road on Monday and Tuesday. The bird was seen by the ranger Malcolm Legg & Brent Hall. It may have been around for awhile as about a fortnight ago he saw a raptor which he now thinks was the Osprey. I believe this is a first for the Mornington Peninsula and Western Port Bay. Non Victorians may not realise that Ospreys are rare in this state. I've seen just the one bird twice - at Portland.  
    I too was surprised to hear Bell Miner there.
