Hi all.

Just an update. Sitting at Marievale with Mat and Roeloff. Just had the Baillon's walk out into the road.

If you sit at the gps point tagged bellow and just wait quietly it may come out.

I submitted a card for Marievale on Tuesday, I suppose I can submit another one for this morning as well.

Here are 2 of my pictures from this morning. It was great to eventually see this bird, especially after dipping on Tuesday. But Doug is right, if you get there early and just wait at that spot you should see it.

Hi Matt. Was it an Ad Hoc or a Full Protocol? If it was an Ad Hoc you can submit another. If it was a Full Protocol you need to contact Doug or Mike at ADU / SABAP2 and withdraw the card so you can submit a new complete card. Stunning photograph!!!

Hi all.

I'm not going to be at marievale but if I can make a suggestion for this weekend.

If you all drive up and down the bus stop hide road looking for the crake, almost no one is going to see it.

My suggestion and it worked for us today is to park. I would recommend parking at duiker hide. There is lots of open ground and then walk (about 200m at most) too the crake spot and then stand quietly and everyone should get to see it.

It's up to you all how you want to handle it but my advice is if you drive up and down that road your chances are roughly zero of seeing the crake.

Cheers.
Doug.
