Hi all,
Philip Griffin and I spent the afternoon at the Western Treatment Plant. The 
highlight of the trip was two Ruff among hundreds of other waders at a pond 
along 280 South Road. I'm not sure of the name of the pond but the GPS is 37 59 
44.5/144 36 15.8. One of the birds had an area of raised feathers on its back 
which didn't seem to be caused by the wind
At one point the waders were put to flight by a Black Falcon. We also saw a 
Black Falcon on the way out, although this could have been the same bird.
We also saw an impressive selection of ducks from the Paradise Road end of Lake 
Borrie with Freckled, Pink-eared, Blue-billed, Shoveller and Hardhead all in 
the same patch of water.
The Arctic Jaeger also put in a brief appearance at Western Conservarion Pond,
All the best,
