Thanks to all those who responded rearding the Northern Shoveler. I visited JW between 4-5 pm today but with no luck. I searched from each hide and while there were quite a few of our own shovelers at Cygnus, I couldn't see him. The sun was getting low and while there were more birds on the far side, there was quite a bit of glare on the water. 

On the upside, I did see four Latham Snipe outside the middle hide including one with an orange-looking band on the right leg. Not sure if this has already been reported but a nice find anyway. 

If anyone locates him again in the ACT please let me know.

Has anyone been to Jerrabomberra Wetlands today? If so, could you please let me know of the location of the Northern Shoveler? I must be one of the last birdoes to have chased it up in Canberra but I'm heading out this afternoon to hopefully get a quick glimpse.

Thanks in advance.
