Hi Birders,The Red Centre is still here, and still wet!A muddy stakeout at 
Ilparpa swamp near Alice turned up three species of Crake today: Spotted, a 
Spotless AND two tiny Baillons. For location and photos see my quick report 
at is also a Ruff 
and one of the Snipes (Lathams I think?) among dozens of other waders out 
there- anyone heading that way should try to take a scope to get the full
