Further to John's comments about WA, I can vouch for conditions in Central 
Australia (NT and SA) having been optimal for these birds over the la Nina and 
beyond. Only last month I found breeding Spotted Crake at a remote sewage pond 
location near Coober Pedy. They had not been recorded in the previous decade 
there despite rigorous annual surveys. These recent years really have been a 
fantastic time to be a birder in Australia. Make the most of it- who knows 
whats coming in the years ahead...
