CommentThe Werribee Treatment (Sewerage) Plant is probably not most people’s idea of a scenic beauty spot. Yet that it certainly is, along with being an internationally renowned sanctuary for birdlife, including most importantly migratory birds making the 13,000km flights from breeding grounds in the Siberian Arctic. Here is the view across Western Lagoon wetlands towards the You Yangs. In the foreground is a flock of Whiskered Terns taking to the air (and reflected in the waters); and on the water, Australian Shelducks, basking in the early afternoon sun after a cloudy morning.
