We had a Buff-banded Rail in our front garden in Box Hill from June to
August last year.

On Saturday, my son told me that he saw an unusual bird in our dirveway
last Saturday.  I asked him if it was a Buff-banded Rail and, after a quick
Google search, he confirmed that it was.

This morning, I saw the Rail in our front garden.  It was using the
birdbath, preening, and generally making itself at home.  It is quite
relaxed but disappears into the hedge or among the tussocks if we get too
close.  I assume that it is the same bird that took up residence last year.
