Yesterday (Thursday 17th September) two visitors from Panama (Dan & Kay
Ward) and a Canadian (Torin Heavyside) and I saw the following 11 raptor
species (nearly half of all Australia's diurnal raptor species) during a
day-long visit to the WTP:

Whistling Kite

Black Kite

Black-shouldered Kite

Eastern Osprey

White-bellied Sea-eagle

Swamp Harrier

Spotted Harrier

Brown Falcon

Black Falcon

Australian Hobby

Brown Goshawk/Collared Sparrowhawk (definite ID difficult)

A solid list of birds of prey within (distant) sight of the Melbourne CBD,
with a few good sightings for this location.
