John, I was at Banyule last Friday and flushed 4 Snipe. I've seen them a couple 
of times over the last few weeks - particularly is in the boggy-grassy area 
between the wetland and the city-side bike track. The holes they probe in the 
mud was quite noticeable.

There were also a couple of Black-winged Stilt, a single Great Egret (many 
Cattle Egret), Little Grassbird next to the main wetland sign, Grey Thrush 
nesting in a hole of the biggest River Red, with 3 Dusky Woodswallow huddled 
close by. Again there was no sign of Crake.
