Date: Thursday, October 14, 2010

Location: Blockers Rd, Myponga.

Latham's Snipe (Gallinago hardwickii) (1) A good looking bird, quiet dark in 
colour. Dissapeared to cover and didn't flush.

There are a series of creeks and swampy areas in the farm land both sides of 
the road. The Latham's Snipe was in a large shallow swamp opposite a property 
"TerreBella".  Further along was one Black-fronted Dotterel. Not a lot of birds 
in this area but an interesting variety.
