I just wanted to correct myself and Bill Moorehead about the previous sighting 
of the Painted Snipe at River Heads in Qld. I mentioned that the bird seen 
recently was the first occasion it had been seen there which was a 
misunderstanding on my behalf, it was the first time the bird had been spotted 
this season. The bird has been recorded at the River Heads site at Garnetts 
lagoon on only two previous occasions in 2007 and 2004 and not last year as 
Bill had reported. I had this confirmed in a message relayed to me from John 
Knight of Hervey Bay who is the only birdwatcher with access to this private 
property and keeps detailed records of sightings. Not sure where Bill recieved 
his information but it was incorrect.

There is some short video of the Painted Snipe at River Heads also been posted 
at the original photo at


If It Exists, You'll Find it on SEEK Australia's #1 job site
