Are people seeing more crakes/rails in SE Australia this year because:

(a) there are more around due to the dry conditions in other parts of
eastern Australia? [likely]
(c) "traditional" sites have become unsuitable for other reasons [also
(b) people are getting better at seeing them? [less likely]

For eg. at Bendigo Sewerage Farm in one small spot, the crakes/rails are
so numerous it'd be hard to cross the mud flat without standing on a few
(Buff-banded, Spotless, Spotted & Baillon's) ;-)
