Hi everyone

Someone at the Belmont Common hide (Geelong, Vic) last Saturday said that a LITTLE BITTERN had been seen near there a couple of weeks before. Does anyone know any more about this? It was in the little swamp next to the golf club car park. Maybe I was asleep and missed this one on Birdng-Aus???

Still no Lewins Rails, but there is some water in Jerringot once again.

Re Tania Ireton's note on Little Grassbird: Once the mud dried out at Belmont, LGB's could be seen foraging deep inside the cracks, often disappearing from view. I also saw Superb Fair-Wrens doing somethign similar, but I don't think they went in as far. A couple of Black-fronted Dotterel were fairly tightly wedged into these cracks as well on Friday or Saturday (yes, I've been there almost daily looking for those pesky rails....)
