Hello all…

Yesterday, my partner Sally Sheldon and I came across 2 separate groups of Latham’s Snipe in the Cairns region – this represents a relatively early arrival up here for this species. Flock numbers were a minimum of 4 birds in one near Port Douglas, and the other was a min of 3 birds near Edmonton. I’ve attached a rough image that I took of one of the Port Douglas birds here… It’s too early for any Swinhoe’s yet, but always nice to have any Gallinago spp around in my opinion…


All the best,

Martin  😊
