Buff Banded Rail (Gallirallus philippensis)

Not a very clear shot but the best one I got on this particular day. I’d not seen this bird at the park before and had to do some research to find out what it is. Apparently they like to live in grassy, reedy or thickly vegetated areas close to water – which describes Lysterfield Lake Park perfectly.
