Visited there briefly last Wednesday. Sighted three Wood Sandpipers in the 
southwest corner of the ephemeral wetlands, where open water first became 
visible when we walked in from the Petersham Rd carpark.

Followed the trail north to where an observation mound overlooks some of the 
permanent wetland on the left. There was an old wire fence running north/south 
at this point and there were three Baillons Crakes perched on the bottom strand 
and feeding when we arrived around noon. They were quite unconcerned at our 
presence and were still there when we left some 20 minutes later, unaware of 
how cryptic they were supposed to be.

Huge numbers of waders visible from the Hooey Rd lokout area, but too far away 
for me to identify them.
