The mouth of the Powlett River near Kilcunda in Victoria is full of surprises. At present there are at least 20 Double Banded Plovers and 6 Hooded Plovers in residence. I was also lucky to observe a Crested Tern diving into the river and catching a fish, as well as a White-bellied Sea Eagle which caught a fish when I wasn't looking.
Alongside the river were White-fronted Chats, a single Great Egret, and a Black Shouldered Kite hovering above. I later observed a mob of about 30 Grey Teals flying over the coastline.
