On my morning walk I was pleasantly surprised to come across a buff-banded
rail in suburban Ryde.

Santa Rosa Park runs between Quarry and Bridge Roads and has a small creek
(glorified storm water drain) that's quite overgrown and the rail was
pottering about on the grass near the creek at the Bride Road end. The only
thing I've previously seen in the creek is pacific black duck.

Guess it goes to show that even patchy, urbanised and largely non-native
habitat can be good news for some birds.
