Ken Rogers and I spent a few hours at the Western Treatment Plant (south-west of Melbourne) today. We saw a few species we don't see much of at Werribee:
On one of the rocky spits north of Beach Road - A substantial wader flock feeding there on a low tide which didn't ebb very far. It included eleven Bar-tailed Godwits, one Red Knot and one Great Knot - every one of these birds a juvenile.
North Spit - Four Grey Plovers (all adults)
Lake Borrie Outlet - A Lewin's Rail ran across the track at about 4 pm.
All the usual Werribee birds were about too, making it an enjoyable day despite the windy conditions.
