Yes, certainly is. Of course we are lucky to only have one species of snipe, that occurs in our area. Otherwise it is hard to distinguish between snipe species.
That includes of course that Painted-Snipes are not snipes, or should that be Painted-snipes are not Snipes.

Hi All,

I headed back to the Forde pond today to see if I could catch another glimpse of yesterday's Buff-banded Rail and instead spotted the attached bird which I think might be a Latham's Snipe.

Having never seen one before, I hope my ID is correct.
