Went to Portland this time last year and had a lovely time!
However, Rufous Bristlebirds heard but not to be seen, and the Banded Stilts I had hoped for 100ks north of Hamilton at salt lakes had flown the week before...but I saw some lovely country and the Grampians looked inviting! Hamilton itself had super Purple-crowned Lorikeets, outside the hospital entrance! Do you know the Fenton property "Lanark" at Branxholme? Farming and conservation combined superbly!
I wish the Hooded Plovers on the Portland beach could get some sort of 'cage' to encourage protected breeding - I asked someone from Rotary about it, and of course you need to prove "in the common interest"!
But, yes, S.W. Vic good to visit.
