Australian Crake - Porzana fluminea Richard Boon 2021-02-03 Bairnsdale, East Gippsland Shire, Victoria, East Gippsland - Bairnsdale (Australia) (1 m) life stage uncertain, sex uncertain -

Bird calling from thick woody shrubbery at the edge of reeds and a pod. SOunded like there were two birds together. Remained concealed even though at very close range and the bird/s could be heard moving through the undergrowth. I wondered if they could be Lewin's Rails. The calls are not quite as staccato as others posted but these weren't calls, but rather contact notes made while birds were assumed to be foraging.
