Evening all
Harvey has beaten me to the punch, and as promised here is a RFI to test the 
non-decline of Birding-Aus (unlike Harvey I won't post to the FaceBook website 
unless I get desperate).
I am also visiting Melbourne in a few weeks - we have booked a holiday house in 
South Werribee (may be a mistake but the price was right...) and this is not a 
part of the world I have spent much time in. We are there for the extended 
Australia Day long weekend - arriving Friday the 22nd and departing around 
lunch time on the 26th.
I have three questions to ask:
Similar to Harvey, I have never visited the world famous Werribee Treatment 
Plant and so would be keen to tag along with anyone who is likely to be 
visiting over that period. Given I can really only afford a morning (I can only 
escape the three kids for so long) it may not be possible, but if anyone could 
help it would be appreciated. Happy to fill out any required paperwork 
beforehand, and I am flexible on days, but might be easier on Sunday or 
Monday.Looking at a map there are a number of locations that regularly appear 
on Birding-Aus as potential birding sites that appear relatively close (Point 
Cook, Altona, etc.) Are there family friendly locations around some of these 
sites that can distract the kids while I sneak off for an hour or so?Werribee 
Zoo is nearby - is this worth a visit with the family?I am still running my 
annual list (between March and February - don't ask) so I would be interested 
in a few things in the general vicinity if anyone has pointers (Fieldwren, 
 nk(!), Crakes, Avocet, Pacific Gull, Black-faced Cormorant?) - these may be 
common in the area (or at WTP) so if this is the case let me know.
Any help appreciated.
