Had my first visit to Werribee Wetlands today, just a brief visit but a great place for bird watching. OK identification on these please.

Thanks to both of you. What you have both suggested confirmed my thoughts. I am not good on waders yet, so needed confirmation....and guess I was hoping that someone might point out one of them was different as I already have all of these on my Life List, except the Spotted Harrier........but back at Werribee in the next day or so and hopefully will spot something new...there is a long-toed stint been sighted there...trouble is will I be able to spot the difference unless he is lying on his back?    Thanks again.  Robert       9001birds.blogspot.com
