Painted Snipe

Dear Birders,
I've just been down to the Painted Snipe swamp (5km south of Rutherglen) and 
have some
interesting news. While the first birds reported were a group of sub-adult 
birds (18th of January),
tonights visit has revealed a group of 7 birds with a stunning female specimen. 
The water in their
patch of swamp has been receding quite rapidly and I have been expecting them 
to move on any
day, but now their numbers have increased! Other wetlands in the area are also 
disappearing with
the summer heat so I suppose they could be 'gathering' before they head off 
together. Any
information on the habits of this classy wader?
Cheers, Matt Weeks
