For those of you still unable to find, or who are totally dissatisfied with
squinting at, the poorly coloured Painted Snipe specimen at Banyule, there
are at least two, a beaut female and an equally nice but not so brightly
coloured male, and possibly a second female, at Kaurna Park just north of
Salisbury in South Aust. ( first found and reported by Ian May 10/12/01)

For those technically minded folk the fixes are: (pick your favourite
system )

WGS 84      34 44 13s,   138 36 13e   or   34 73694444444s ,      138.6e

AMG           34 44 10.0736s , 138 35 55.1353e       or  34.7361315581699s,

UTM            N 54  280148.056,  E 13846421.0           or        N 54
280274.748      E 13846494.9

How's that for keeping locations secret !  (FNQ birdos please note)

So, what are you sitting there for ? The birds are only about 20m out from
the levee bank alongside the highway.  Off your bots and come and and see
some proper Painteds.

super-usable grid reference conversion spreadsheet other than that Redfearn
