​I dropped by the locations between 4:15pm and 5:30pm yesterday afternoon on either side of something we had to do in Bungendore. 

The Trucking Yard Ln dams were all pretty much empty except for the small dam on Burrows Ln which had many ducks that all flew off when I got out of the car.

At Lake Rd the female(?) painted snipe was present probably in the spot where Michael is referring to in the 2 taller clumps of grass or rushes about half way down the fence running perpendicular to the road past the right of the island. It was in front of the further clump beside the fencepost. Immature Black-fronted Dotterels with only the slightest sign of their black fronts were also present.

On the way back we stopped by the Bungendore sewerage works, where there were no less than 14 Plumed Whistling-ducks (suspect more sitting in the grass), 2 Australian Shelduck and many a Shoveler.

All in all a great visit.
