Young Water Rail.......Big Waters

Kept making solo appearances in front of the main hide. Parents must be trying for next brood.
Cuckoo kept calling and finally made a very brief appearance behind the main scrape.
Feeding station was busy with local residents feeding young. Notably Tree Sparrows and Great Tits with a juvenile Great Spotted Woodpecker being chaperoned by mum.
Young 'un     having a pootle about.


  1. John,

    I got a young Water Rail with legs.


    ps. its handy to have a zoom lens sometimes ;)

  2. It wasn't the zooming effect that was the problem. It was the bl**dy shutters !!!
