Spotted Crake at RSPB Greylake, Somerset
On my way to Greylake, I was thinking to myself this is going to be a nightmare waiting for this bird to show. On arrival at the mud-pan, and before I'd managed to take the scope from off my back, it walked into view. I spent about 2 1/2 hours watching it from first light and it spent almost half of that showing well, often right in the open and sometimes alongside Water Rail or Moorhen. I managed to take some video of it which can be found on the link below.
