Hi Tony,

That makes sense. Here is a note I got from Dave (Victorian Wader Study Group):

        Hi all,

        Thought you'd all be interested that the first snipe of the season for 
Australia was reported on Friday from near Ipswich, Qld  

        This is about 10 days earlier than the long-term average...

        Regards, Dave

Time to start keeping our eyes open!

Cheers Lori

A friend of mine who walks his dog at West Belconnen Pond tells me he observed 
his first Latham's Snipe for this season at West Belconnen Pond on Monday (12th 
August).  He didn't have sightings on Tuesday or Wednesday - but those days 
were foggy so maybe the Snipe was just laying low, like most Canberrans.
