No snipe flushed today between Acacia Inlet and Scrivener Dam

1300 to 1430 hours, light rain 13 degrees

Some comments on location - there are 3 distinct areas that appear suitable for snipe. These are around Acacia Inlet extending to the shore in front of Indigenous Art Gallery, ? Yarramundi Reach. There is a small bay with similar reed and grass shore beyond a Govt Depot, GPS 35 17' 0" 149 4' 45". I can't find a name for this. and then adjacent to Scrivener dam.  This type of foreshore is interupted twice by trees of the Arboreteum where the foreshore is a firm dry bank.

The suitable areas are unusually wet this year, in most years much drier and even mowed.
