Hi all,

Heather Thorning photographed a Gallinago sp. Snipe at Bibra Lake this morning, 
just north of the new bird hide in the NE of the lake (seen from the hide I 
believe). Several people failed to see it during the day, but Plaxy Barratt, 
Dan Mantle and Paul Newman have reported it showing again this arvo around 
6.15pm, though I get the impression views were relatively distant.

Obviously this group is a challenge to ID in the field, but any Gallinago is 
unusual in the south-west
