I am fairly confident I saw a Lewin's Rail in Forde this afternoon, on the side of the bike path at -35.172175, 149.146030 (I was riding to Mulligan's Flat)


I jumped off my bike and followed in around a bit without binoculars or a camera at hand. I didn't get a good look at its head, bill or front, but there was clearly no white at all on its back, rather distinctive Rufous/brown and black feathers; also barred under tail, so I am pretty confident.  


However, there are no records of Lewin's rail in Forde or nearby on Eremaea Birds or Birdata which makes me a little nervous. Have others seen them in or near this area?
