I got some more details about the sightings from Rob Davis. It was not at the north end of Herdsman Lake but the south end where the Freckled Duck has been seen the past couple of seasons. Find the Herdsman Lake Wildlife Centre at the south end of the lake (home of the Gould League). Then walk left (clockwise) around the lake for 200 metres of so until you get to a car park and a small spit to an island. The Freckled Duck hangs out around this island, or it roosts underneath a couple of melaleuca trees about 100 metres further around. These trees normally have cormorants roosting on top. This is part of Maurice Hamer Park.

The Buff-banded Rail and Baillon's Crakes are on the western side at the north end of the Maurice Hamer Park. They were among the flooded grass under the trees.
