I'm sure there have been no previous records of this species from southeast
Queensland or northeast NSW so this is a pretty extraordinary record.

Hi all,

On Wed, I rec'd an email with photo of White-browed Crake seen at West Bryon
STW on 2nd Feb.

Yesterday afternoon, I went there with 2 friends to search for it. All three
of us got great views for about 10 mins & heard it calling many times before
& after seeing it. 

No doubt, it's definitely a White-browed Crake, I think a long way south of
it's normal range.

Does anyone no if there's been many previous records, if any, of
White-browed Crakes in NSW or SE QLD.? 

What would be the most southerly record for this species.?
