That makes sense. Here is a note I got from Dave (Victorian Wader Study Group):
Thought you'd all be interested that the first snipe of the season for Australia was reported on Friday from near Ipswich, Qld (https://ebird.org/australia/view/checklist/S58680367).
This is about 10 days earlier than the long-term average...
Time to start keeping our eyes open!

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.
