Lewin’s Rail – an adult at last!

For twenty years I’ve been searching for an adult Lewin’s Rail (though I had seen a couple of juveniles in the past) so it was great when some fellow birdos notified me of their presence at Samsonvale Cemetery in October/November 2008 along with a couple of pairs of Spotless Crakes. A few days after these clips were taken the Brisbane area had some catastrophic-storms and the water in the dam rose 2-3m higher.
