Hi all,

There's a pair of Latham's Snipes in the dirty leechate water next to the 
Soldiers Point Recycling Plant, near Nelson Bay, NSW. Seeing as this is a newly 
formed piece of man-made habitat, I cassume this is the first record of this 
species for this locality - although they are relatively common in the Hunter 

Here are some Snipe photos:

And one of a Musk Duck:

In other news, male Musk Ducks are doing their thing on Grahamstown Dam, along 
with Great Crested Grebes etc. Also hundreds of White-throated Needletails over 
Whoota Lookout in Wallingat National Park.

Some other recent pics can be seen here:
