That's quite some record (see below) in what is fast
becoming a major wildlife hot-spot. For foreigners, Tyabb is
about 60km due south of Melbourne, Victoria, and this
sighting was only 2km from Hastings where John Gamblin
recently saw 40 Swift Parrots.
But the knock-out is that Mitchell's Hopping-Mouse:
Menkhorst's new Field Guide shows it as confined, within
Victoria, to the far NW of the state !
