Saw the Lewin's Rail at the end of one of the tracks through the grass down to the water's edge where many photographers were watching the Northern Shoveler. Very elusive and at first thought it a Crake. 

I returned to the spot 2 hours later and the Baillon's Crake had taken over and openly feeding within a couple of metres from where I was standing. Others had been watching it at close range too.
