I did an early morning 6am look on Friday for the snipe but know now that I was not in the correct  place after looking on a map for Ginninderra creek (was on the lake edge near/opposite Dumas road where I found and active double barred finch nest) . Will be good to have some “local snipe” as have not seen one yet even after this morning at Kelly’s swamp, where I froze!!

Will venture out again sometime this weekend to Ginninderra creek, any further geographical references would be handy.

This afternoon Latham's Snipe at McKellar Wetland (1) and along Ginninderra Creek (3) in Giralang. It seems that snipe are popping up in every suitable location northside at the moment. Are people seeing snipe south of Lake Burley Griffin at all?


Also a group of 5 Brown-headed Honeyeaters by Ginninderra Creek in the center of suburban Giralang.
