Hi everyone,

My 2012 Victorian Year List is coming to a close, and I have a few species
outstanding. Don't worry, no records will be broken!

Can anyone help me with some reliable locations or recent sightings for the
following birds around Melbourne or within a day trip?

Lewin's Rail - I have tried WTP a number of times without luck
Australasian Bittern - not many sightings this year (that I have heard of),
perhaps more dispersed?
Australian Little Bittern - still a bit early?
Lesser Sand Plover - I've only ever seen these on Mud Islands, but I won't
have time to get out there
Wood Sandpiper - I've tried Hospital Swamp, ETP Boundary Rd and Stockyard Pt
Pectoral Sandpiper - I am aware of a couple of sightings at WTP in the last
Australian Painted Snipe
Arctic Jaeger - this would be a lifer for me - any ideas of a good place to
see them? Often offshore at WTP?
Scaly-breasted Lorikeet - have tried Rickett's Pt
Song Thrush - have tried Royal Botanic Gardens and CERES
Red-whiskered Bulbul - I doubt there is such a thing as a reliable site for
this bird!
