With all that planted cover and, er, nutrient-rich stormwater inflow, there could be a permanent population of rails there.  This is the BBR from this afternoon.  As I recall, a few years ago there was a plurality at that unpromising pond near the O’Connor shops, and I think Lindsay H had one in his backyard at leafy Jerrabomberra Acres.  The Spotless seems to have displaced the Spotted as the ‘common’ crake.
