Mike Carter and Val Ford note the observation of an
Osprey near Shoreham on the Mornington Peninsula.

This will only be the 23rd record for the species in
Victoria (Atlas of Victorian Wildlife data).  The only
other observation near Melbourne was from Werribee
Sewage Farm a number of years ago. Most record are
coastal but there is one from Barmah Forest on the
Murray near Echuca in the 1990s.

I encourage Val to forward full details for inclusion
in the Atlas.
