Hello all....Just spent a fruitless hour searching for spotless crakes at UQ. Plenty of juvenile moorhens. I have been a student on and off at UQ for
over ten years and have never seen anything resembling a crake.

Yes indeed I will have to give way on the crakes. My initial impression of juvenile moorhens was correct; they were nearly all very near a moorhen and they certainly weren't skulking around the undergrowth but out on the lawn in plain sight.

In my defence I will blame my wife as she really did the ident from simpson & day; I just lazily accepted her identification. Mea Culpa.
