Twitching fever causes closure of rare bird site.
Access to parts of the Cheetham wetlands at Point Cook just west of Melbourne, the site of the “probable” American Golden Plover for the last few weeks have been refused after
over-exuberant twitchers jumped fences without the permission of the local rangers. Follow the thread on the birding-aus website.
The good news is that it may be still possible to see the bird as low tide approaches, feeding in a public area at the point.
