Snipes, Crakes and Rails

Coolart wetlands always provides some surprises and Friday was no exception. Normally secretive birds were out in the open for extended periods allowing for good photo opportunities.

A Latham's Snipe flew in and remained exposed on the muddy bank, a Spotless Crake emerged from protective cover on several occasions as did a Lewin's Rail. Meanwhile a White Faced Heron provided some entertainment chasing away the competition from younger herons.
