Dear All
Had an interesting day at Werribee on Saturday (20th). Met up with Fiona and 
Jonathan Parkin for a days tripping.  While not getting any of the birds I went 
for - Lewin's Rail, OBP or Aust. Bittern, I did add a couple to my WTP list.  
The first bird I recorded as I stopped at the Paradise Rd gate was Dusky W/S 
(about 6)  - bird #1.  Did all the usual places and a couple of tracks that I 
didn't even know existed like the one behind the Borrow Pits.  Saw a single 
Spiny-cheeked Honeyeater at the eastern end of the Borrow Pits, jumping around 
the dead trees before it flew off over the coast - bird#2. Saw Red-browed 
Finches heading east towards Conservation Ponds - bird#3.  Spotted Crakes were 
seen at the Borrow Pits and along the Spit.  4 Fairy Terns were observed on 
rocks just off the "beach" as we travelled between the Kirk's Pt gate and the 
Hide along the beach road.  All in all a good day with over 70 species seen.

Yours in all things "green"
