Hi all,
I went for my first solo trip to Western Treatment Plant - Werribee yesterday morning. I managed not to get lost and saw nearly 70 species for the morning. The highlights were the waders at Borrow Pits. Red-kneed Dotterel, Black-winged Stilt, two Black-tailed Godwit, Red-necked Stints (several with orange leg flags), Sharp-tailed Sandpiper and Curlew Sandpiper (many with some of their breeding plumage. I assume these were recent arrivals. I have photos of some of these if people are interested). Elsewhere there were some male Musk Ducks displaying, a Horsfield's Bronze-cuckoo near the hide, about ten Pied Oystercatchers at the hide, Black Swans with cygnets in several ponds and many on nests at Lake Borrie. There were several singing Golden-headed Cisticola and the usual Skylarks but the stand-out vocal performance of the morning was a Striated Fieldwren in the top of a bare bush at Kirks Point.
All the best,
