Walking past a big irrigation dam on the property where I live, I was
thrilled to find a male painted snipe feeding along the foreshore.   To my
knowledge it is a first for this area (Gunnedah on the north-west slopes
and plains of NSW).

I watched it for quite a time and got really good views of it.   When it
stood still it blended into the landscape perfectly and it froze whenever
it got concerned.   I was incredibly lucky to even notice it was there.
