Hi All, 

After a woeful week of ordinary weather, got back into fieldwork 
chasing Brown Falcons at the Western Treatment Plant, Werribee 
over the last couple of days. 

As well as lots of Brownies, there were half a dozen black-tailed 
native-hens at the eastern end of 160S Rd, on the edge of the 
Losewitz Paddock. 

The apparently resident Black Kite was also present, again in the 
usual area near the corner of Flume and Hill Roads (NE cnr of the 

There were also 4 Glossy Ibis at Lake Borrie, just off Paradise Rd 
before the T intersection at its eastern end.

All relatively regular birds at WTP, but good to see them all in a 
day anyway.

Happy Birding,
Paul McDonald
