Hi All,

I visited the Western Treatment Plant at Werribee, Victoria today and had great views of the Hudsonian Godwit at Walsh's Lagoon. The bird was present at Walsh's for most of the day, preening, feeding and occasionally flying around. Many visitors were able to see this wonderful bird. I managed to get a few photos from quite some distance away. The bird appears to be associating with Black-tailed Godwits and Bar-tailed Godwits.

Also saw Spotted Sandpiper on the pond between Lake Borrie and the coast.

If you are interested some photos can be seen at m("N05/sets/72157612598423298/","//");">http: If you would like to try to spot the bird in a mixed flock in flight m("N05/3199135004/sizes/o/in/set-72157612598423298/","//");">http:

Cheers, Paul
