Greetings all, While driving to Melbourne and back yesterday I had some great 
sightings of raptors as I crossed the Moolort Plain which lies between 
Carisbrook and Newstead (west of Bendigo). Early morning a Spotted Harrier flew 
close to the highway in a typical low fashion just above the ground. Brown 
Falcons and Black-shouldered Kites were common on the overhead wires plus an 
Auatralian Kestrel. On the return late afternoon a Wedge-tailed Eagle and a 
Whistling Kite were near the reservoir end of the plain. Little Eagles are 
regularly seen here as well plus a pair of black Falcons which are reliable 
when the farmers start burning later in the season. Its not a bad spot for the 
raptor lovers in the group. cheers, Gary Oliver"Birdshoot
