Hi All,
There are indeed two Painted Snipe at Alice Springs Sewage Ponds- I saw both 
this morning. The adult male bird is reasonably bold, not flinching when I 
broke the skyline (as one must at this very open and exposed site) and giving 
great views, but the other bird is very flighty- it flew off into nearby dense 
veg and didn't re-appear. They continue to be focused around pond EP7.The scene 
is developing fast at the ponds- there are now literally hundreds of wood 
sandpiper and vast rafts of ducks. No doubt there are other goodies out there 
waiting to be discovered...
