Luke, You have a good chance of seeing Arctic Jaeger from the ferry between Sorrento & Queenscliff. They're around because one was found at Bonbeach on Tuesday and is currently in a wildlife shelter. Australian Little Bittern are believed to be breeding in the swamps SE of Melbourne (a female with a brood patch was caught recently but I can't tell you where and in any case they have not otherwise been seen nor recently heard), Pectoral Sandpipers have been seen in the last week at Boundary Road and in the Eastern Treatment Plant itself but access not possible until we count on 23 December, and 6 Painted Snipe were seen and photographed yesterday at the Desal Park at Wonthaggi, wherever that is - the park not Wonthaggi!
