Thanks to all who kindly gave info regarding best spots, Tania, Russell, Dave 
and Jack, it was invaluable. A special thanks to Richard and Lorne, who so 
kindly took time to show us those special birds through the spotting scope and 
teach us 'greenhorns' a little about birding. If you guys are an indication of 
what the birding crowd are like, what a great hobby/passion to be part of.
  Scott and I were thrilled with our final count, after 5 hour, of 65 species, 
with at least 6 being lifers. We dipped on Brolga, Phalarope, Godwit and OBP's, 
though according to 'eremea' wed page, 2 OBP's were sotted at WTP on anzac day. 
We picked up, thanks to Richard and Lorne, Double-banded Plover and Red-capped 
Plover. We also got 4 Freckled Duck and 6 White-winged Black Tern. Spectacular. 
Also good views of pair of Sea Eagles.
  We can't wait for our next visit.
  Thanks again,
  Melissa Falconer.
