Yesterday afternoon at Norgrove Park I saw what appeared to be a 'very small' version of a crake. It flashed across the surface at the end of the arrow on attached map and disappeared behind the casaurina branches. It was a very dark crake shape but I thought too small for the regular resident Spotless Crake which I have seen there on various occasions.
Do juvenile/chick crakes appear as fully grown but at a much smaller size?
I will go back this afternoon and check it out again.
