A few things strike me as unusual about this request:

First, Mr Beszant wants to see "rare birds" rather than interesting regional birds, or ones that he hasn't seen before.
Secondly, he doesn't give a date when he is visiting
Thirdly, although he has been on outings with the Gold Coast group, he hasn't actually asked about outings in Victoria, but merely wants the local knowledge.

Can anyone from the Gold Coast Bird Observers verify Mr Beszant as a bird photographer rather than anyone with a more sinister agenda?

I'd be cautious about offering information until we can check this out - sorry to be suspicious, but it doesn't exactly ring true for me.

I am an amateur bird watcher from Auckland and would be interested in
observing and photographing birds around several towns. I am travelling form
Wodonga through to Warrnambool via Beechworth, Wangaratta, Shepparton,
Bendigo, Geelong and the Great Ocean Road.

I am interested in any rare species in these areas.

I normally attend outings with the Gold Coast Bird Observers when I stay (on
holiday with my wife) in the winter and am gradually building up a
collection of Australian Birds Photos.

Could you direct me to the birding areas within the above regions and give me any bird observers groups that may be able to give me local knowledge

Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you.

Alan Beszant
