Myself, Grev and Margaret Reidy also visited Mcgrath's hill on Sunday
morning and saw similar birds that you saw but while we missed Tawny
Grassbirds and Buff-Banded Rail,  we did manage to see 2 Spotless Crakes
and a Pectoral Sandpiper. We had excellent views of Little Grassbirds,
saw less Baillon's Crakes but more Spotted (around 10).

We did see an unidentified birder in the distance, perhaps yourself?

This site has improved tremendously over the years.
