It is nice to see that there are 6 Brolga at the Plant at the moment, an adult pair with two full grown young and a second adult pair. And there are always surprises to be seen on a visit to the WTP; last weekend we had a Magpie Goose floating off-shore amongst a flock of Australian Shelduck.

|Little Raven harassing a Swamp Harrier. I like the way the Harrier has adopted a swift-like wing shape in an attempt to escape the annoying raven|
|Swamp Harriers are so wary I find it hard to get a photo of one sitting. This one knew it had been seen but remained just long enough for me to get a photo|
|Magpie Geese are not common in Victoria and are usually seen near or on fresh water ponds and lakes. For some reason this bird chose Port Phillip Bay for a rest.|
