I can't give you a more recent update than that, but my experience so far is 
that the tide doesn't really matter, so long as you avoid the extremes.  At 
high tide, the birds might be resting, and either hard to find among the ducks, 
or not moving at all.  At extreme low tide, so much sand is exposed that dog 
walkers sometimes start walking from the beach across the river mouth.

I've also noticed that the actual tide levels can vary considerably from the 
predicted ones from the BOM site 
( depending 
on the wind strength and direction, sometimes by more than 30cm according to 
the RYCV gauge (  
I'd just turn up early and stay as long as you can if they aren't there when 
you arrive.  Hope that helps.

I will be in Melbourne this weeekend and hoping to see the long
lingering Hudwit at Laverton. I would appreciate any update since the
last report on Birdline Victoria is July 14.  Low tide on Sunday is at
11:11 AM. Might it be better to see it on a falling or rising tide?
