While looking for the Lewin’s Rail at Forde we found a Buff Banded Rail. It was in the spot west of the footbridge, first seen on the path and then in the lomandra near the waters edge. It had a large white eyebrow and buff band on the breast, so an adult Buff Banded. We also thought we heard another one up stream, but it may have been the same bird. No sign of the Lewin’s unfortunately.
