Dear Birding Aus,
I was at Currawong Flat, Audley in Royal National Park on Sunday February 16th in the early evening at about 6:15 pm, walking the margin of the Hacking River. It was very quiet, no one else in the area, and among the barely immersed reeds, I saw what I think was a Spotless Crake.
It size, color, and behavior, all seemed consistent with this bird, my only reservation is that the definitive under tail markings were not observed, and I did not find this bird on the list for the Royal.
I 'lm hoping for a second look.
