I found another great Bristlebird spot yesterday - this species extends from 
about Bell's Beach, near Torquay, west along the Victorian coast.  Point Addis 
is often considered a good place to see them, especially early in the morning, 
although I've seen them there at all times of the day.  The carparks at various 
spectacular coastal formations along the Great Ocean Road (12 Apostles, Loch 
Ard Gorge particularly) are also good spots for RBB.

Yesterday I saw several bristlebirds at Airey's Inlet - there's a great little 
patch of scrub along the sign-posted "Clifftop Walk" just east of the 
lighthouse.  The birds were very active and vocal and it was very easy to spot 
a few within a 15-minute walk around this patch of bush.  Magnificent cliff 
formations as well - a great spot I've never visited before.
