Hi All,

Thanks to everyone that provided advice regarding Blue-winged Parrot along the 
Great Ocean Road.  I had numerous leads ranging from Queenscliff through to 
Otway although most centred on the Airey's Inlet to Anglesea area. I didnt see 
any along the coast line, possibly because it is too busy with tourists these 

In the end Peter Fuller's spot at the Airey's Inlet Water Reuse Ponds proved 
pick of the bunch. What a fantastic spot to go birding!   I heard them well 
before I saw them and saw a few Neophemas fly over very high up before I could 
finally i.d. without a doubt two BWP's in dead trees at the eastern end of the 
ponds.  I think any of the bush tracks behind Airey's Inlet through to Anglesea 
would be suitable habitat for them at the moment however.

Thanks again, for everyones advice.
