That little lady in north Dubbo sure has seen quite some activity in recent 
weeks!  :)  Some of the locals have taken some great photos of her, too.

I'd be interested to hear from any travelling birdos who are making a special 
trip (or otherwise amending their travel routes) to go birding at Dubbo to see 
the Snipe.  This sort of info is great for selling the value of an STP bird 
hide to our local Councillors.

Thanks to ( F Hemmings and D Eldridge, via birding-aus 2/11 #11188) she was 
still there.
The small pond has dried up. The larger pond,(6 meters dia) is down to about 4 
meters. It is closer to Fitzroy Street just after River Street on the eastern 
side of the road, next to an abandon yellow house (ForSale). It was seen in the 
afternoon.GPS cords. 32deg 13min 54sec 148deg 37min 3 sec. How did you guys 
ever find it in the first place.
The pond is close to the road with about 30 sheep and 2 horses in the paddock. 
It is very dry out there and if they don't get some rain soon this pond will be 
dry in the a month or so.
