Hi all,
The snipe was seen by Mark Binns this morning at North Lake around 7am on the 
west side of the wetland on the edge of the small pond separate from the main 
lake - however, it had flown off before the observer left. Since North Lake is 
just over the road from Bibra Lake, it is presumably the same bird

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
